L.L. Bean

To make sure SU students are fully prepared to enjoy the outdoors this winter, L.L. Bean visited the quad Monday afternoon to host a “Wintervention” with their traveling Bootmobile.

As an incoming freshman, I lacked the proper winter wardrobe. I had long since deemed myself too cool for snow boots, thought raincoats were overdramatic, and throughout high school, would sprint between my car and the school's entrance just to avoid wearing a coat.

When I got to Syracuse, the joke was on me. Trying to get through winter without the essentials no longer made me cool; it just made me cold.
