This month's question: 

The end of year busy-ness is upon us! Which of the following did you take part in this year?

Last month's question:

Students are hurrying to classes to escape Oswego's classic November chill! Which winter articles of clothing did you find you needed most during your time on campus?
  • Boots that could withstand snow, sleet, rain and the puddles outside of Hewitt Union! 27%
  • Where else is a giant hood or hat more fashionable than Oswego? 24%;
  • Layer upon layer of leggings, pants and sweaters underneath - usually discarded piece by piece in a very warm lecture hall and totally worth the annoyance! 9%;
  • Mittens or gloves. You'll see my fingers in April.  10%;
  • A winter coat - but not the one I thought would be adequate when I arrived as a freshman. No. I needed to purchase the Arctic Special, and it was a prized possession. 27%;
  • I was always under-prepared for the weather! It made me run faster.  3%
