On Feb. 1, 2011, the City of East Lansing shut down in anticipation for what many people referred to as “SnowMIgeddon”, “Snowtorious B.I.G.”, and “Snow-Pocalypse”.
With Michigan State University closing for Feb. 2, many students took the day off as a chance to relax and kick back. Many residence halls set up video games and movies in the lobbies and study lounges, and even offered snacks to residents who did not feel like walking to the cafeterias.
“I’m using the day to catch up with friends,” said medical technology sophomore Alyssa Zoski.
Still other students used the day to catch up on homework and get ahead of the game with their studies.
“Most people partied. I just chilled and slept last night and studied for the test and quiz I have tomorrow,” said business sophomore Brittani Jackson. English junior Kate Dylewski, who recently got over the flu, said she would use her time to do, “the backlog of homework that I didn’t do when I was infected with the plague.”
Most students used the day off both to be productive and to relax. “I’ve been doing homework and watching movies,” said political science senior Andrew Estes.
No matter what residents and students were doing with this historic snow day, they seemed to stay safe and responsible. Residents have been pretty good about cooperating with officials trying to get the snow out of the way.
Work, school, and life as normal are set to resume on Feb. 3.
