UGA, mainly residential, never closed because of snow for my first three years there, though we had some heavy snowfalls. I, lunkhead or responsible student that I was, always slogged to class, only to discover that the teachers never showed up. Usually I was the only student there as well.

Then in my senior year the University began closing because of snow--rumor was that a student had been badly injured on the infamous Stegman Steps, which ran steeply up a hillside near the entrance to the football stadium. The student had slipped on ice or snow and had taken a very bad fall, then had sued the school because it should have closed.

Don't know if that's true or not, but these days UGA closes for snowfalls. Even when it's just two inches, as it was last January.
