    Default "How to create your own SNOW day and shut down school"

    The incident surrounds the campus legend that is students can fill the archway at Kauke Hall, the school will cancel classes.

    It was a tradition that was too tempting for hundreds to try Tuesday night.

    Campus security got concerned about the tradition because Kauke just received $18 million in renovations this year. And when students started filling the doorways with snow as well, they called in the Wooster Police Department.

    Officers claim students threw beer cans and snow balls at them. But before things could get too bad, Dean of Students Kurt Holmes arrived.

    "I talked with the Captain at the scene and said, 'if you can give me a little latitude we probably can get this group working in the right way', which we did."

    Holmes gave the students one hour to finish the project. And coincidentally classes were cancelled the next day. But Holmes says that's not because of the tradition, but because there was so much snow.

    Well here at purdue we had classes cancelled for two days because of the snow, but a tradition like that? I wished we had that here. Classes could be cancelled for a week. At least it was in all good fun and not destructive.

    My high school has a tradition. Seniors cement the doors to the school shut. Last year we got the day off for it.

    Wish I lived somewhere where snow wasn't just a legend.

    It's not common for it to snow here in England but I wish we had a traditon of sorts in our school. We could flood the school once a year :P then we would get longer than just a day off
    We usually get a day off or so when it does actually snow here... although it is more like mush and then ice
