Winter at Penn State
It's the first day of December and my thoughts have turned towards winter. There has been no significant snowfall yet but it can't be far off now. I came across this photograph of the Snider Agricultural Arena while searching our digital archive for pictures for a project. The University Park campus retains a quiet beauty through every season and winter is no different. As a student years ago I would grumble a bit when I had to walk across campus from East Halls to Deike Building for a Saturday morning class (yes, Saturday morning classes were once a reality). But I have come to appreciate the changing seasons and the transformation of the campus. You can see a few more winter campus pictures HERE.
The metadata for this file indicates this picture was made last March at 1:09 AM on Saturday morning. I don't usually drive back to campus in the snow in the middle of the night but there are times that you just don't want to miss. And even at this time of night there were people in the Arena and the holding facilities getting ready for an event later that day. Sometimes it seems the College of Ag Sciences never sleeps.
