If You Go to One of These 10 Snowiest Colleges in the U.S., Class Should Definitely Be Cancelled
College students experience snowstorms like this one a bit differently than the rest of the population. On the upside, if they live on campus then they don't have to deal with commuting by car in this traffic-accident-waiting-to-happen mess. On the downside, that means they have to walk to class in the slop. On the upside, their idyllic campuses look super pretty and snow-globey all draped in white. Downside: they might be snowed into their 10'x12' dorm rooms and therefore unable to avoid their bizarre roommates/a severe case of cabin fever. Upside: if you go to one of the 10 snowiest colleges, per Fox News, then you definitely have bragging rights — and class definitely should be cancelled.
