[slidepress gallery=’winterinfo_bloomquist’]

Volunteers from the Commuter Center and Off-Campus Services and representatives from the Undergraduate Student Government passed out hot chocolate, ice scrapers and snow emergency information today in Lot H and in the Anderson Parking Facility.

Ice scrapers and snow emergency information were placed on the windshields of vehicles with commuter parking passes. Starbucks hot cocoa was given to students, dispensed from a beverage backpack.

The volunteers will hand out the free stuff again during convocation hour Thursday.

Students who missed out can stop by the Commuter Center in Murray-Herrick Campus Center to receive weather information sources as well as information on winter parking, snow emergencies and emergency overnight accommodations.
