TBT: Snowy Campus Scenes

With more snow forecasted for today, it’s only fitting that our TBT include another snowy campus picture. This picture can be found in Falvey’s digital library and shows the exterior of St. Thomas of Villanova church with snow leading up to the church. This photo was taken in 1960, although the snowy scene looks a lot like the snowy scenes we’ve seen on campus today!

TBT: Snow-Covered Campus

Campus, Snow scene with view of Grotto and Chemical Engineering Building, 1970

We have officially had our first (two) snow days of the semester! In case you weren’t able to wander around campus in the snow earlier this week, here’s a picture of the snowy campus from 1971. It can be found in Falvey’s digital library here. The picture shows a view of the Grotto and Chemical Engineering building all covered in snow.

What campus scene do you miss the most? I think I’m a little biased, but I definitely miss cozying up in Falvey for a study session!

‘Caturday: There’s a chapel in the pines…waiting for us, around the bend…

We suppose we could have gone with These Boots Are Made for Walking as a suitable lyrical caption for this 50-year old photo of a lovesick Wildcat couple gazing across a snowy Mendel Field.

But it’s Valentine’s Weekend and we’re in the mood for love!

So instead, we’re going to imagine that it’s the other #1 hit from February 1966 – Lou Christie’s Lightin’ Strikes – that’s the soundtrack in the heads of these cooing ‘Cats. Admittedly, its lyrics are primarily about a guy not quite ready to settle down, but there really is a chapel there! And it is just around the bend from these two and surrounded by what probably is a dozen pines or so.

We just have to head to the Digital Library’s helpful  Arboreana to make sure.  🙂
