Surviving a Winter Day at UMass Amherst (As Told By GIFs)

We've all experienced a typical winter day at UMass. It's cold, windy, and at times frustrating but at the end of the day we suffer through it because we love UMass and it's worth it. 

Waking up knowing it’s a snow day…

Waking up knowing it’s a delayed opening…

Waking up knowing you have class…

Bundling up to face the cold winter air…

Compulsively checking the PVTA schedule trying to calculate the best way to minimize your outdoor exposure…

Waiting for the bus in the cold…

Checking the bus tracker and seeing that your bus is late…

When the bus finally arrives and you’re so excited...

But if you miss the bus…

Seeing other students suffering along with you in their winter attire…

Wait, is that a girl in denim shorts?

Walking through the library’s wind tunnel…

Navigating the icy pathways…

Watch out! There’s a biker coming!

Trying to walk carefully and not wipe out...

Wiping out anyway...

Huddling by the heaters outside Baby Berk…

Having your classes all in one building…

Having your classes all across campus…

Sitting in a classroom that’s as cold as it is outside…

Going to your next class in a room that’s too hot…

Readjusting your route to use the Campus Center/Student Union passage…

Getting out of class before it gets dark…

Going to the library and enjoying your Procrastination Station mocha...

Not wanting to leave the library and go into the cold…

Spending an extra hour at dinner to avoid going back outside...

Getting back to your warm room…

Realizing you have a meeting across campus tonight…
