The Weather Last Sunday Was Frightful—But the Snow Looks Delightful

Depending on where you live, you might not be aware that it snowed all day in Farmville last Sunday, dropping more than 12 inches of snow in the area. Most students were probably safely and snugly home by then, so they missed out on the winter wonderland that the campus became as a result.

Longwood closed for two days, so the timing was actually lucky. That amount of snow a few days earlier would have wreaked havoc with the final exam schedule.

The Longwood campus is beautiful all the time, but it is particularly picturesque in the snow, as you can see from the photos below.

We hope you and your family have a wonderful holiday and that your student uses the winter break to rest and recharge.

Residence halls open for the spring semester at noon on Saturday, January 12. Classes begin at 8 a.m. on Tuesday, January 15.

Best, Sabrina Brown
