Cal U’s campus received several inches of snow Sunday night resulting in the announcement that the University would be closed on Monday, Feb. 1, 2021.  By Monday afternoon, we found many students outside having some fun and engaging in wintry weather activities.

Cal U volleyball team members Jaiden Armitage, Kaylin Burkey, and Cayla Boller add the finishing touches to their Cal U themed snowman for the Student Activities Board “Build a Snowman contest” on Monday, Feb. 1, 2021.
