News from Lindsey Wilson College

COLUMBIA, KY - Lindsey Wilson College freshman Drew Worley was scheduled to have a U.S. history test on Monday morning.

So when Monday classes were canceled Sunday night in anticipation of the winter storm that blew through the region early Monday morning, Worley used the day to get ahead in another class, "Introduction to Organismal Biology" class.

"Since (my four Monday) classes were canceled, I thought, I'm already studied up for the history exam, so I'm going to spend this day completing the study guides for (biology) class," said Worley, of Hickman, KY. "That way I can get ahead of the game and better prepare myself for those tests."

Tuesday classes were also canceled and offices remained closed.


Not all LWC students were as ambitious as Worley was on Monday.

Brenna Smith of Corbin, KY, and Megan Aubin of Louisville, KY, planned to spend some time studying on Monday. But during the morning, they played in the snow, which included making snow angels on the Campus Quadrangle.

"I've been jumping into clear snow, because that's fun, and making snow angels," Smith said.

Smith and Aubin were among dozens of LWC students who enjoyed the foot of snow that fell on the campus by sledding down Keefe Hill on the west side of campus and having snowball fights all over campus.

Because she will graduate this spring, Smith said she wanted to take full advantage of LWC's first snow day of the school year.

"All the years we've had snow days, I've never gone out and played in the snow, so I decided to do that today," she said.

Although LWC classes were canceled and offices were closed on Monday, staff in the college's plant, campus safety and dining services made it to campus to clear sidewalks and parking lots, help students who had car trouble, and cook the day's meals.

Aubin said it meant a lot to students to see the college's essential personnel on campus.

"It means a whole lot to us because who else is going to get up early and come in for us?" she said. "For them to get up and come here meant a lot. They are putting themselves at risk for a whole college campus. Without them we wouldn't have any food or clear sidewalks."

Although for most LWC students, faculty and staff, a foot of snow is reason to take the day off, for student Fabienne Rochaix of Stafa, Switzerland, it seemed odd that life nearly came to a halt when snow fell. Rochaix said it's unheard of for classes to be canceled or schools to close in Switzerland because of snow. "For us, it's really weird the whole school is canceled because of snow," she said. "I normally go to school by train. ... So when you go by train, you have to prove that the train was late if you are late, otherwise your teacher is going to yell at you."
