At Robert Morris, the facilities staff worked around the clock to keep pace with the continuous snowfall and accumulation on the campus roads and walkways.
While campus staff made their way around the university, students took to the hills to sled ride using whatever objects they could get their hands on.
As the Winter Storm Warnings expired at 7:00 p.m., RMU facilities workers continue to clean the roadways and sidewalks with crew vehicles and salt.
