BOONE, N.C. — This week, as faculty and students prepared for final exams, a visitor heralding winter arrived on Appalachian State University’s campus — the first accumulating snowfall of 2020.
University photographer Marie Freeman ’85 braved wind gusts of up to 25 miles per hour, along with a wind chill of 11 degrees Fahrenheit, to capture scenes of an App State campus dressed in white Dec. 1 — from a snow-dusted Sanford Mall to ducks taking an icy dip in Duck Pond.
Check out the photo gallery above to view Freeman’s frosty frames, and be sure to catch a live view of the next snowfall by visiting App State’s online Holmes Convocation Center webcam and Sanford Mall webcam.
