Snow Days: Reality vs Expectation

Hello Future Badger! I am happy to announce that today is one of those days,that as kids we all hope and dream for, it is a SNOW DAY!!!!  That means we get to sleep in, watch movies, play in the snow and drink hot chocolate!

That is normally what you would do for snow days in high school or elementary school. In university you can still play in the snow and watch movies, but mostly it is a day of sleeping in, catching up on readings for classes or try to get ahead and wanting to stay in bed watching Netflix all day!

So what happens if you have a midterm or assignment due in class on a snow day??? IT’S NOT DUE!!.… Just kidding that is what all university students dream to have a cancelled midterm or assignment. However, unfortunately we will have to most likely make up day. There are two days reserved in April if there are snow days and for this year these days are April 7th and April 8th. Majority of classes will just get pushed back a week, as well as there is constant updates from the Professor as well as the University to ensure you know what’s going on.

Additionally since it is a snow day for the University that means that the University libraries and recreation facilities will be closed, except for the cafeterias still remain open for students staying in residence (thank goodness).

To find out whether it is a snow day here at Brock University you can follow us on

or even on the main site where all your class information is posted will have updates  on the weather conditions.

My plans for this snow day is I will be staying inside today drinking lots of tea ( David’s Tea is my favourite) and trying to catch up some of homework while watching friends!

Best of luck out there Future Badgers hopefully you have a snow day too!
