If you feel that this situation violates your safety so dearly then write your congressman a letter. Get others to join you too. There's no reason you should be left in a live/die situation with that type of a snow situation. If you were to die one day like that on the roads, I would imagine that the college would not so much like the idea of a student who died who could have lived staying home. Reputation is important like that.
My congressman is a fuckface, and he's not going to do anything with my letter except wipe his ass with it. There was a large group of protesters outside his building just the other day wearing gas masks and stuff, demanding some type of regulation and acknowledgment. Nobody official bothered to talk to them or accept their petition, they sent some poor old lady receptionist to take the petition from them instead. They asked if they could hand it to the Governor's Environmental Adviser in person, but they just barred the doors and said "he's not seeing anyone right now."
Then it turns out the Governor himself was in Washington D.C. the day of the protest. It must be nice for him to be able to just fly out of this crappy weather, get paid for it, and not have to give a shit.
The University doesn't care either. In December, one of their Ph.D professors slipped on the ice and broke his shoulder early in the morning before most people were up there. He could barely manage to get help, had to go to the ER, and had to miss work for awhile. You'd think they'd be a little more willing to call a snow day at that point, but no.
Cabbage, no. Papermills, yes... however I don't know that it is hazardous to your health, but it did smell terrible. I could be wrong though, maybe it is. I can't imagine any cabbage smell would cause harm to your lungs though.
A bike would work if the campus wasn't on a hill... Biking uphill is more effort than walking.
Sounds shit. I can solve one parking spot problem. Stick a bike into your car, park it and then cycle to college. Probably, not a good idea in the snow though. I wouldn't really know, since it hasn't snowed here in 3 years and it just really... rains... >.>
Maybe, if you have money for gear and time to enjoy it. If not, you have to go about your usual day with all the cold, slippery, wet, unpleasant, dangerous conditions it creates. Plus if it doesn't melt for awhile it gets all dirty and gross.
