Snow cancels classes, elevates students’ spirits

Students scurried to classes as snow fell Tuesday. According to a campus e-mail written by Kelli Horst, director of communications, classes starting at 5 p.m. or later were canceled because of the snow but the university remained open.

Krista Coffey, a sophomore nursing major, said she couldn’t have been happier when she heard the news. She had a test in her 6:30 p.m. class. Coffey said she had just started cramming for it when her friend, Mary Russell, also a sophomore nursing major, broke the news to her that classes had been canceled.

“I had been having a really good day already before classes were canceled, but not taking the test is just icing on the cake for me.”
