UW-Madison Plans Massive Snow-Ball Fight!
- Jareen, CNN iReport producer
In spite of this, over 1,000 students attended a snowball fight planned only hours after the finals cancellations. Students teamed up based on where their dorms were from, either Lakeshore, or Southeast dormitories. and the battle-ground was the Historic Bascom Hill!
Students came dressed (or in some cases not) for the weather and joined the fight. They had everything from trays used as shields, slingshots to fire from the rear ranks, flags for battle positions and even some who rode bicycles down the hill between the battle lines.
Police and other University services were aware of the event and the fight continued without major incidents or injuries. Several students reported black-eyes, but no regrets were disclosed from the whole event.
The students still have one more day of finals left and after the Lake-shore Students eventually won the contest, many of the students returned to their dorms to clean up and complete one last study push for the last day.
