What is your favorite college memory?

My first semester at Hendrix I was given the opportunity to go to Boston and visit the Museum of Fine Arts for a group project. The entire trip was a treat I will always cherish however, I distinctly remember walking down the street one of the nights of my stay and it began to snow. We don't get much in Arkansas and I truly loved that moment of chilly weather, lights, and snowflakes.
