Snow Day? Have Some Fun!

So, most of the country is covered in about 47 feet of snow right now, which means one thing: SNOW DAY! Well, maybe for all those kids who don’t go to University of Michigan. That place doesn’t cancel classes for anything thanks to two students who sued the school for loss of tuition and ruined it for the rest of us.
Anyways, snow days are pretty bomb. No class? No responsibility? Lots of snow on the ground? Sweeeet.
You may see it as just another day to spend curled up on the futon with your TV and a bag of Smart Pop Kettle Korn, but I am here to tell you that it is time to throw on the snow pants (or layer 3 pairs of sweats) and get outside. Don’t treat today just like any other day off of class (by drinking Gatorade and recapping with your girls); there is much fun to be had on a college campus in the snow.
(Note: CollegeCandy does not support or condone any of the following acts. They are just things we have…heard about.)
Lunch Tray Sledding: You are gonna have to be a bit sneaky about this one, but grab a backpack and head to the caf. Grab a few lunch trays, take em back to your room and grease those suckers up with a little Pam/cooking spray. Then head out to the nearest “slope” (or some sort of hilly area on campus) and let loose. Sledding never gets old…especially when there is the thrill of breaking rules involved.
Dorm Wars Snowball Fight: One night, while studying in my room, the fire alarm in my building went off. I grabbed my slippers and jacket and headed out into the frigid Ann Arbor night, roommate in tow. The moment we stepped outside, my roommate was pelted in the forehead with a snowball. I was laughing so hard I barely noticed the war that then broke out around me. It seems the dorm across the street had collaborated to get us outside so they could attack us. It was illegal, it was cold…but it was hilariously fun.
Winter Beerlympics: Grab all your friends together, form country teams and enjoy a day of winter sports. Flip cup, an ice luge, a snow angel competition, and some form of icy beer pong will make for some great competition…and a little warming from the inside out.
Naughty Snowmen: I’m sure a bunch of creative college girls can figure out how to take the innocent snowman and turn him into something a bit more…risque. If you do, send me the pics. I’d be interested to see what that looks like!
