Approximately five inches of snow covered the Gettysburg College campus beginning the evening of Jan. 11.
By morning, the snow had stopped falling and a partly cloudy sky lent ever-changing light to the white that decked the College's historic buildings and grounds.
A photo gallery attempts to capture some of the campus's wintertime beauty following the new year's first significant accumulation of snow in the Gettysburg area.
Founded in 1832, Gettysburg College is a highly selective four-year residential college of liberal arts and sciences with a strong academic tradition that includes Rhodes Scholars, a Nobel laureate and other distinguished scholars among its alumni. The college enrolls 2,600 undergraduate students and is located on a 200-acre campus adjacent to the Gettysburg National Military Park in Pennsylvania.
