Nashville experienced some cold weather, with temperatures dipping below freezing throughout the week.

Dean of Students Mark Bandas sent students an email on Feb. 10, warning of the dangers of hypothermia and recommending that students who wish to gather outside do so in the WiFi equipped white tents on campus.

Vanderbilt is preparing for another cold spell this week, and Nashville is under a winter storm warning until Tuesday, Feb. 16. at 6 a.m. CST.
