Nemo on Campus

Images from New England colleges coping with the great blizzard of 2013.

February 11, 2013

Many colleges in New England closed Friday and for some or all of the weekend to deal with the impact of a massive blizzard (widely, but not officially called Nemo) that left more than two feet of snow in parts of the region. While many professors stayed home, and many students enjoyed snowball fights or snowboarding, campus workers kept students fed and cleared campus roads and walkways. Some campuses will remain closed today. Many colleges posted images to Facebook or Instagram. Here are some of those images.
