Strong Hall, 1964

Snowball fight at Strong Hall, 1964.


From The Cherry Tree, 1964: "There's no time like snow time ... Thanks to the snow we had a brief respite from finals and a chance to do a little more cramming. Girls naturally felt colder and someone had to keep them warm. Southern belles who had never seen snow before shrieked with childish delight, while fraternity pledges groaned about all the shoveling they would have to do (somehow they never got around to doing it, though). Students and professors were stranded in the city and cars were abandoned for days. Above all, the snow was always a good excuse for a party and a hot buttered rum punch."
