Attention, Wellesleyan. On the off chance you haven’t noticed, there’s approximately a mega-shit-ton of snow on the ground right now, and you’re frantically trying to figure out what to do with it. Go skiing on Foss? Turn
Usdan WesWings trays into sleds? Stay in your room and Instagram luscious storm porn?
As Nemo the Blizzard keeps on trucking, we’ve got a solution. We’re formally inviting all students to build snow sculptures of Michael Roth ’78 on Andrus Field and send us photo evidence at staff(at)wesleying(dot)org. Please put “Roth à la Neige” in the subject line of your submission and include a few images of your magnum opus. We’ll reward the student or team of students who makes the best snow sculpture of Roth with a $25 gift certificate to La Boca, a personalized letter of congratulations typed on my personal Olympia Werke Ag. Wilhelmshaven typewriter (yes, really), and a public commendation on this here blog. The second-place winner will be personally serenaded by esteemed storyteller Brendan O’Donnell ’14 in the (on-campus) location of your choosing. This is not a joke.
Lastly, full disclosure that I shamelessly stole this idea from the Government and American Studies departments at Skidmore, where my brother goes to school. I simply substituted Abraham Lincoln for Michael Roth, because they are in most cases interchangeable.
