TTU students struggle with freezing temperatures Thursday

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Despite freezing temperatures, classes continued for Texas Tech students Thursday.

They trekked to classes through whipping wind and snow, hiking across a campus that covers 2.3 miles.

"I can't feel my feet. By the time I get in class they thaw out, but then I leave again," said student Holley Dane.

But fortunately, these students know how to use their resources.

Riding the bus is a daily ritual, but they said it comes especially handy on days like this.

"It saves me a lot of time to walk from commuter west," one student said. "That's by the Spirit Arena, and I go all the way to Holden, so riding the bus saves me a lot of time. Plus, I don't have to wait in the cold while it's snowing and stuff."

"It's freezing so a lot of times I just want to get into the building as fast as I can," Dane said.
