The end of winter break brought a chilly new feature to campus – an ice rink! On January 17, students were invited to make a cup of gourmet hot chocolate to enjoy while skating. The area has been popular since the start of the spring semester and is home to daily hockey games amongst friends or simply skating around after class. Be sure to stop by this new feature and look out for any upcoming events on the ice!
