ANN ARBOR, MI — While some prefer to stay inside during a winter storm, University of Michigan students would rather embrace the harsh weather.
Hundreds of students and community members gathered at the heart of campus for a giant snowball fight on Wednesday, Jan. 25.
Before the fight began, a handful of students built a snow fort for protection. This became the center of battle as newcomers formed an opposing front about 30 feet away.
At one point, a dog entered the battlefield. Immediately, a ceasefire was called until the dog was safely back with its owner.
Those who were not interested in being pelted by surprise stuck to the outskirts of the Diag. Some formed their own snowball fights, while others built massive snowmen.
