SERVING THE BREVARD COLLEGE

Winter weather blankets campus over the weekend
by Gretchen Allie
Many students prayed for snow Sunday
night, hoping for canceled classes and
a day off. Prayers were answered, and
Brevard College received about an inch
of snow. Students and teachers were both
excited and annoyed with the snow.
The campus was filled with excitement
Sunday night as students played in the
snow. Snowmen of interesting nature
were built around campus Sunday night.
One snowman, in front of Green, was
“smoking” a lit cigarette. While another
snowman, ironically in front of the cross
on the quad, was equipped with a wiener
and pubes. The creators of this particular
snowman wish to remain anonymous be-

cause of their upstanding reputation.
Classes were canceled because teachers
couldn’t safely get to school. Beth Suttles,
Lab Manager and Instructor, was snowed
in for most of Monday. Although she lives
five minutes away from campus, she got
seven inches of snow. Because the windy
road leading to her house was icy, she had
to cancel a midterm for one of her classes.
She said, “The snow was fun, but I worked
the whole time.”
The snow hit Sunday night when some
students were driving back to school from
trips home. Emily Belchyk, freshman, had
gone back to her home in Georgia when
she was hit with snow on her drive back to
BC. She said that she has no experience
driving in the snow, so it was scary because
she could only see ten feet in front of her
car and the roads were icy.
Patrick Lawrence, a junior, is from Michi
gan, and the little amount of snow Brevard
received was not enough for him. He said,
“If there’s not enough snow to build a snow
castle, then there shouldn’tbe snow at all.”

Chelsea Freeman, a freshman, on the other

snow-tally awesome” she said.
Student spring break party plans
by Daniel Heyman
MTV and stories of triple keggers have
painted the same picture of spring break for
most college age students. But not all Bre
vard College students are giving in to spring
break’s party reputation next week.
Many students are using the time to visit
home or just to relax, “I might spend a day
or two at the beach, but I think I’m just go
ing to chill heavy and kick it with the fam,”
said student Jer Ber G. Rhymes.
Some students are taking the time to visit
their distant famihes, “Driving to Indiana
over a weekend is a mearthly drive. It’ll
be nice to see the moms and pops, I don’t
get to often, you dig?” said student Greg
In parts of Canada, spring break is called
study week. Perhaps that’s a little too lame
for Brevard College, but hopefully few of
us will make it onto youtube with the video
title “Drunk guy falls off balcony, kills
himself and Lil Wayne.” Though I think
many of the readers are with me when I
say I hope that does happen.
