Had enough of winter?

Well, we've had our fair share of snow this winter, but I suppose it could be worse: campus could look like it did after the ice storm in November of 1936. Great for photos, but not good for the trees.

In Qu├ębec, the celebration of Winter Carnival breaks up the monotony of winter. Did you know that Tufts had its own tradition of celebrating Winter Carnival? In the 1950s and 1960s residential halls, fraternities, and other student organizations created impressive snow sculptures, like Zeta Psi's sculpture of Jumbo pictured here.

All the images we have of snow sculptures show that back in the day there was plenty of snow. Why no sculptures this year?
