Winter Fun on Campus
Kent State University students took a break from studying for final exams to enjoy the winter weather and relieve some stress by having a snowball fight. Information about the snowball fight was posted on Kent State's Facebook page, encouraging students to come to Manchester Field, participate in the winter fun and be sure to bring their snow boots.
The lake-effect snow storm that hit much of Northeast Ohio dumped about 20 inches of snow in Kent, making travel by foot and car difficult. The bad weather and road conditions caused the Kent Campus to close for a day and a half, postponing finals during those affected times.
Some professors made alternative arrangements with their students to conduct their finals online. For those students who needed to stay an extra day or two, the university kept residence halls and dining services open.
