Back-to-back snowstorms hammered Wesleyan’s campus on March 6–7 and again on March 13, while students were preparing for—or away for—spring break.
Winter Storm Riley swept through campus on March 6–7 with blustery winds and heavy snow, and Winter Storm Skylar delivered a constant stream of flurries to Middletown on March 13.
“As students and faculty were preparing for spring break (staff at Wesleyan mostly work straight through), the New England winter reminded us all that the season wasn’t quite done blanketing our campus,” President Michael Roth wrote in his blog. “It’s beautiful, but it’s slippery. It’s fun to slide down Foss Hill, but it’s cold and wet. Spring will arrive . . . meanwhile midterms, papers, theses and snow.”
Photographs of the storm, taken by Wesleyan students, faculty and staff, are below:
