It’s snowing today. Not that much (in fact…only flurries), but still - we thought we’d share these wintery UChicago photos of the Midway with you, from when it really was winter.
It’s almost impossible for people at UChicago to make normal snow figures. Above: the Pyramids at Giza, complete with a tiny (look for it!) snow Sphinx.

On a snowy day like today, the Mansueto can feel like the Snow Globe of studying. (Thankfully, though, it’s warm and dry in there, and you’re not a snowman).
Tumblr user 110gpa posted this photo of Harper and our quads in the snow, and noted it looks like an alt-rock album cover.
We see your note, and raise you a title and inspired group name. Bonus points to the person who actually forms this band and records the track for us.
[Aside to 110gpa: Thanks for this! We would have reblogged you, but can’t do that and add our revision at the same time, weirdly]
Okay, so where’s the snow? Why is it so sunny and warm today? Why doesn’t campus look like these photos? WHAT’S HAPPENING WINTER? Also, check out this super cool video.
We want snow!
We haven’t gotten any snow of note yet. Perhaps posting these photos of snowy campuses past will encourage Jack Frost to nip at our quad. We’re dreaming of a white first week?
This might be the hottest day ever in Chicago? Over 100 degrees? Really?
“The snow was fresh and I had to take a few shots before work…this one just as the sun was coming up and the sky was a rich blue.” - Matt Frankel
Snell-Hitchcock tradition, the Snow-BQ!
It’s a snowy afternoon on 57th Street.
