Storm dumps two feet of snow on campus; photo galleries

Gettysburg College was not immune from the giant snowstorm that hammered the mid-Atlantic region Feb. 5 and 6.

Students made the best of the situation, playing football in the snow, digging snow caves, and strolling through the drifts.

Accumulation totaled approximately two feet.
