How is it possible that I have gone to UND since the Fall 2000 semester (don't say anything...no one finishes in four years anymore!) and there has only been one snow day during that entire period? And the sad thing: that one time wasn't even a whole day...it was a half a day! I'm not saying that last night's blizzard really warranted shutting down the university today. However, the sudden and suprising brush with winter reminded me of just how much fun it can be walking across campus in a blizzard or, at least, near-blizzard. UND basically NEVER shuts down. Maybe that is a good thing. Perhaps it shows their devotion to teaching students no matter what is going on outside. But wouldn't it be nice to give us "kids" a day off now and then? Please??!!??!
