I can survive winter…and so can you

I’m from New England and after over two decades of Connecticut winters, the three feet of snow today didn’t seem that bad. A lot of people at Clark are not familiar with temperatures like this and some are from regions of the world where it never snows, so this was quite the excitement. No matter…

Over the weekend, I decided to partake in enjoying what I should call a varsity-style concert.
