Despite the cold, Huskies will play in the snow

With Winter Carnival just around the corner, Huskies are already showing their spirit by participating in snowy activities. On Saturday, Jan. 28, members from organizations of Michigan Tech gathered at the softball fields to set up a net and play volleyball. The event was hosted by the Blue Key Special Events Committee and was scheduled to take place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. 

Fourteen different teams, all consisting of Michigan Tech students, were organized to compete in the snow-fest. Amongst the various ice sculptures currently under construction, Huskies can also be seen participating in other winter activities. The festive activities are a viable outlet for the college students to express themselves in a fun environment. With plenty of gloves, thick layered clothing, and snow boots, the excited students are truly a force to be reckoned with. 

To most, the bitter cold in the dead of winter would disencourage any outdoor related activities. However, members of the Michigan Tech community are known for their perseverance and their ability to turn the frigid temperatures into an engaging activity for all. Snow-volleyball is an annual event that is manifested through one common attribute found in all Husky Students: Tenacity. 

When asked for the reason to host a snow volleyball event, the representative of the Blue Key Special Events Committee responded with, “Why not? It’s fun.” This is the kind of energy that the Huskies will be carrying with them until Winter Carnival begins Feb. 8.
