The Northeastern Snow Team
With extraordinary coordination, precision, and dedication, the Northeastern Snow Team continuously cleared the campus of snow during this record-breaking winter, keeping roads and paths clear and the community safe. The team braved the brutal elements to move a record amount of snow in record cold temperatures, and remained on campus for several days at a time during storms. They moved 7,200 tons of snow off campus in more than 800 truckloads; laid down more than 250,000 pounds of ice melt; and logged more than 9,500 overtime hours. The team’s accomplishments were so awe-inspiring that one student signed up as a part-time worker.
