Crews Work All Night to Clear Snow on Campus

December 18th, 2013 by

Physical Plant crews worked throughout the night to clear the more than half a foot of snow on campus that fell the day before. The snow ended at approximately 9 p.m., but most of the white stuff had been cleared by the time employees arrived the next morning.

Alumni Ties

February 13th, 2013 by

When Caroline Marks ’16, below, ventured out into the snow-covered lanes of Mount St. James during the early February snowstorm with classmate Dylan Vasconcellos ’16, she couldn’t resist snapping a few shots and sharing them with her Latin teacher at Kellenberg Memorial High School in Uniondale, N.Y., Dave Bonagura ’03. (“Mr. B,” after all, is a fellow Crusader.) Bonagura then sent them to Holy Cross Magazine editor Suzanne Morrissey. “We love getting snapshots from alumni and students,” Morrissey says. “It’s fun to see the buildings, details and spaces they love the most and want to capture in images.” Do you have photos of campus you’d like to share? Email Suzanne at (High resolution shots only, please.)

Students in the course, which is offered every semester, learn about exposure controls, camera operation, and rudimentary film developing printing. Here is a sampling.

Freak Snow Storm Dumps More Than a Foot of Snow on Campus

October 30th, 2011 by

Snow arrived early this year; weeks before trees had a chance to shed their leaves, in fact. Nearly 15 inches of snow fell in the area, leaving thousands of local residents without electricity following downed tree and power lines. The Holy Cross campus, which was playing host to hundreds of families for Family Weekend, was largely unaffected by the storm except for downed tree limbs.

The red leaves on the Fenwick Hall vines are covered with a powder of snow.

March didn’t exactly go out like a lamb. Several inches of snow fell overnight from March 31 to April 1. But with temperatures reaching above freezing, much of the snow melted by the afternoon.
