Summer Rosenwald vs. Winter Rosenwald
Even though the fall colors have disappeared from campus, we are left with something just as beautiful.

We’re still in that transitory state between fall and winter here in Chicago. But campus is as beautiful as ever.
"In the early afternoon yesterday, as most of us sat scattered around campus eating lunch, we looked outside the pale-grey windows and saw snow. The first snow!"

It’s almost that time of year! It is always great to stroll down Michigan Ave with a hot cocoa in hand and later strap on a pair of ice skates at Millennium Park.
The first snowfall marks the death of autumn, but winter is the birth of a new kind of beauty. (Photograph by Gordon Lew, ‘15) #uchicago #uchicagocollege #chicago #hydepark #college #university #snow #firstsnow #colors #beautiful #gothic #architecture #light #photography (at Hull Gate)
Winter, here we come!
Winter at UChicago is: hot chocolate, roaring wood fires, running between Harper and Reynold’s, surprise snowball fights, ice skating on the Midway, that it’s-freezing-so-I-don’t-care-what-I-look-like-coat, waking up to snow.
It’s that time of year again, guys. Kuviasungnerk/Kangeiko is UChicago’s annual week-long winter festival of morning exercise, knitting, ice skating, hot chocolate, ice sculpting and as always…the Polar Bear Run. On Friday, students trek out to Lake Michigan for a pre-dawn salute to the sun. The name Kuviasungnerk comes from the Inuit word for “pursuit of happiness” and Kangeiko comes from the Japanese samurai tradition of winter training.
Here are some beautiful photos from the Kuvias of yesteryear (from froboy) to keep you motivated :)
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.
