Photos of Great Blizzard of 2016 on Campuses

January 25, 2016

OK, we know those at the University of Wisconsin at Madison, the University of Rochester and the University of Maine at Presque Isle are not that impressed with the volume of snow falling on the Middle Atlantic region, but many campuses are experiencing heavy snowfall and closed on Friday and today. Below are some of the photos we've spotted on social media. Tweet your photos to #IHEsnowday or send to editor@insidehighered.com -- and stay warm.

Here's a Virginia Tech student celebrating a snow day on Friday.

Juniata College took a moment to honor those working hard to clear snow -- and others working during the blizzard.
