During Hoofers’ Winter Carnival last February, students built themselves a classmate out of snow on Lake Mendota. Hoofers are the Union’s outdoors activities clubs. The next Winter Carnival will run February 2 to 8, 2015, and beneath their mittens, Hoofers have their fingers crossed for ice and snow. The event has been part of the Union since the 1920s — a much longer life than this poor top-hatted gent experienced. RIP, Frosty: rest in puddle.
