Campus in Winter

Founder's Hall covered in icicles
Before I was a student at St. Mike's, but after I had decided to come here, many people asked me where I was going to college. I would tell them, and the reaction was usually the same-- both "Oh, my niece/uncle/best friend/acquaintance's aunt's best friend went there and they LOVED it!" and "Wow, I hope you like the cold!"

A very snowy view out my bedroom window
Lucky for me, I do like the cold! On my tours, a lot of people ask how we survive the cold up here, and really, I too once thought that the nonchalance to the cold was weird. I can remember on my Accepted Students Day when I was a high school senior, it had just snowed. As my mother and I were walking across campus, I saw a kid walking around in shorts, a T-shirt, and sandals. In snow. I thought he was about the craziest person ever, and I still would never brave the cold without my coat and boots, but I kiiiiiiind of understand where we was coming from. After you're subjected to the long winters of Vermont for a few months, it really is not so bad.

Winter sunsets are the best
And winters up here are just so darn pretty. The sunrise and sunset seem impossibly vibrant shades of pink and orange against the cold sky, and I love the way the sun glimmers off the fresh snow in the mornings.

A nice sunset over the 100s
So today, I thought I would just share some of my favorite pictures of the St. Mike's campus covered in that powdery white stuff... 

Sunrises over fresh snow make the cold walk to my 8am class worth it.
As always, if you have any questions, please feel free to contact me! Happy Wednesday, everyone :)
