Much of Connecticut, Massachusetts and Rhode Island were under a weather watch as tornados, hail, heavy rains and strong winds were in the forecast. After rain fell on campus the summer skies turned gold during a cloudy sunset.

Savoring a Moment of Calm

Even with all the news about record snowfalls and ice wreaking havoc on the roads, the beauty of Mount St. James blanketed in snow is hard to miss. “I took this photo last Monday around 6:30 on my way to the MCAT course,” shares psychology major Kendall Presti ’14. “I was really just running from Hogan down to Stein when I caught a glimpse of the way the snow was cascading down the Dinand steps.” She paused to take this photo. The Massachusetts native who grew up skiing says she loves the white stuff…even a lot of it. “Maybe its the quiet serenity snow delivers that makes the world feel like it stopped turning for a minute. I’m not really sure, but with all the chaos of life, snow gives me a sense of peace. I think that was a large part of why this scene at the library appealed to me. And, of course, that literally IS what this moment did for me—I stopped mid sprint just to savor that moment of calm.” Presti says she thinks the Holy Cross campus is at its best in the winter, but jokes that if she says that too much, an angry mob of snow-loathers might show up at her door!
