Friday, school officials asked for people to not return to Champaign-Urbana until Sunday because of the weather. The snow caused hundreds of crashes statewide.
Now that students have flood back to campus, they say they are excited for the semester to start. “This is my first time studying in the U.S, it’s one of the best schools that I know of, my friend and family who knows about my graduate program, they said that it’s one of the best schools so I’m really excited moving forward to join,” said Shefali Balyan. Balyan is from India and says she is already enjoying it here because she has not seen snow since she was younger.
