Campus Under Ice and Snow

A residence hall in the snow.

Post by Kristi Woody, photographer and social media coordinator

As a student, I am certain that this week would have been something I could only dream about. Three days out of class and perfect sledding conditions? What more could a college student ask for?! As an employee, however, I’ve had a different reaction to our recent wintery situation. I can only handle so many days of what I call the “couch potato life,” and two days is my threshold. By Wednesday, I was ready to get out! Unfortunately my dead car battery had other plans. I talked my friend and coworker Sarah Belcher, graphic design specialist here at Union, into picking me up a little ways outside of my neighborhood, and we trekked over to campus. The main roads were clear, so we had no trouble. We spent some time walking around the Great Lawn area for me to take photos of the campus with a blanket of snow on it. It was just such a relief to be out of the house and looking at something other than an HGTV Property Brothers marathon! The time off really made me appreciate the environment that I work in here at Union. This is a place that I look forward to coming to each morning, not only for the work that I do, but for the people I’m surrounded by in this Godly place. It doesn’t hurt that it looks so lovely covered in snow!

I hope you all enjoy these photos as much as I enjoyed taking them. Oh and, spring, if you’re listening, come quickly!
