Vanderbilt Cancels Classes for Only Fifth Time in History

Feb. 16, 2015, Alumni Lawn

Vanderbilt canceled classes for only the fifth time in university history when sleet and snow blanketed Middle Tennessee, and students made the most of it. “Anything that was flat and large enough—ranging in size from Rand lunch trays to container lids—was used in an attempt to slide across the now frozen lawn,” reported The Vanderbilt Hustler. “For a while, trays seemed to be the best option for sledders until a group of students brought out a mattress to use on the ice.”
