Are there snow days in college? Guess what chumps, you’re no longer in high school… when it snows, you’ve gotta suck it up.

But…in February of 2011, I was fortunate enough to be a student while a historic event took place at the University of Missouri. Its it entire history, the university had only closed due to snow for 4 days: 1978, 1995, 1998 and  2006. In 2011, campus was shut down for 3 entire days. In a row. And it was awesome.

I didn’t have to wake up in the morning and watch the news to see if class was cancelled. The Chancellor sent me an email the day before, explaining that I could put off reading, studying and anything learning related off for another 24 hours. Thank you Chancellor. I played a lot of video games over those three days. It was beautiful.

I think it snowed 21 inches.
