Let’s be honest. If you don’t ski or snowboard and don’t like basketball games, Logan winters are pretty boring. We think it’s great students can take time out from the rigors of academia to lose themselves in the creativity of snowmen building.
We need more activities like the Snowman Gallery Walk that come along every once in awhile to divert our attention from the winter blahs and mundane homework assignments.
Think of all the out-of-state kids from California who have never seen snow. It’s important to teach everyone how fun snow can be, instead of being that gross, slushy stuff that makes everyone revert to their 16-year-old self when it covers the roads.
That’s why we think building snowmen on campus is so great; we can be creative and distracted from our homework at the same time, all while being hip and not flowing with the mainstream crowd.
The only thing we can think of that might be better is if someone — or a group of someones — took it a step farther and created an impromptu Calvin and Hobbes-esque display at the doors of the Dee Glen Smith Spectrum or on the turf in Romney Stadium.
