What's hot on the BU web: Summer Term 1999

BU Beach in winter

It's hardly benchmark weather on BU Beach when the Boston area receives five to eight inches of snow this late in the season. (Remember the 26-inch snowfall on April 1, 1997?) We can't resist pointing out that the latest storm occurred during the Ides of March. The date isn't necessarily a magnet for bad luck, even though Caesar was cut down on March 15 in 44 b.c. Still, messy roads and canceled flights -- 150 at Logan Airport that day -- didn't facilitate students' return from spring break. Photo by Kalman Zabarsky
