Slideshow: Battle for Bascom snowball fight
On Sunday, Feb. 8, hundreds of students engaged in the “Battle for Bascom 2K15,” an epic snowball fight held on Bascom Hill. In what is becoming an annual tradition, the spirited battle pits members of the Lakeshore residence halls against those from the Southeast residence halls. The Lakeshore team claimed victory this year, yet fun seemed to be had by all.
