April 17th Clemson Historic Picture Of The Day

Snow Storm Fun From 1970’s

(Photos Uploaded By Alan Cutts)

Today we will step back to the 1970’s and a snowstorm that hit Clemson and provided some fun for Clemson students when classes were cancelled.

The above photo shows some students using their “talents” to make two snowmen. In the background, you can see students sledding down the hill leading up to the Clemson House. It was not uncommon for students to “borrow” dining treys from a dining hall to use as a sled.

The next picture is a typical photo anytime you have snow and kids. An old fashion snowball fight was due to break out anytime you had a snow.

In this next picture, you can see someone has tied a rope to the back of the car in an effort to provide a pull a sled through campus.

And the final picture today is of some enterprising Clemson students who poured water down the driveway outside of Johnstone Hall. With the cold temperatures, the water froze and provided a slick track to slide down to pass the time one evening.
