From ground level, or bird’s eye view, UW-Green Bay is blanketed in beauty. Although we can almost bet that there is more snow (and incredible images) to come, campus student photographers Sam Zingsheim and Lauren Hlavka take us back to the first significant snowfall of November 2014 with these campus snapshots.
The UW-Green Bay campus is a chilly winter wonderland these days, with recent snowfalls adding to the picturesque landscape. Here are a few of our favorite images from December’s snows.

Sure, the snow is melting, but in areas not plowed after last week’s record snowfall because they were parked end-to-end with student vehicles, those crusty drifts and snow/ice patches are remarkably persistent. That’s why our facilities and parking people have declared a campus emergency for both Tuesday and Wednesday (March 29 and 30). Of special interest to faculty, staff and visitors: On Wednesday, March 30 the entire Studio Arts parking lot will be closed for parking until all snow removal vehicles have left the lot. It’s also worth noting that, on both days, other parking lots will fill up faster. Reminder: There’s a potential $50 Snow Emergency citation in play, so look for signage, barricades and snow-removal crews. Contact Parking with any questions at 465-2301 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The March 22-23 snowfall, in case you didn’t hear, was at 17.8 inches the biggest two-day snowfall in Green Bay since the 1880s, more than a century ago. With the long days and higher sun, it was already starting to melt as of Friday. But it still made for pretty pictures.
