Spring Day 1985

Fridays with Fred - Spring Day

A photo essay of Beloit’s infamous Spring Day

   Every Beloiter remembers the ferocious storms that move into the area on a hot and humid day, explode with crashing thunder and bright flickers of lightning, and leave the campus drenched in rain. On the night of September 24, 1984, with the help of a plugged storm drain, a lake developed in front of the ’64 dorms. As thunder still rumbled in the distance, students fled their un-airconditioned rooms and, with spontaneous joy, cooled off, wading and splashing in between parked cars.
