Atop the South Campus Dining Hall, dozens of students gathered Saturday to celebrate the beginning of spring.
The Music and Art Rooftop is the first of its kind, organized by WMUC Live Music Director Asher Meerovich. Meerovich roundup bands from the DMV area to celebrate the finally-warm weather.
However, although the weather had different plans, several dozen students endured the nipping temperatures and bitter winds and enjoyed various performances including, music, spoken word, comedy, and visual art by various artists.
