Brief glimpses of spring began to emerge through winter's snowy months. While snow is still making up its mind to finally leave this season, students' minds flower and thrive at Princeton. Bundled and bounding on wonderland paths, students in this video trail between havens that offer friendship, warmth and memories. They pause in spaces like Chancellor Green, which more than a century ago held the entire Princeton library -- and is now a comfortable space for study and reflection.

Life always blooms at the Frist Campus Center's Café Vivian, where friends find balance between the sciences and humanities -- and laptops and coffee.

For those who walked in Prospect Garden, the snow blanketed and protected the promise of spring.

Students, who conquer midterms March 7-11, will find regeneration in the various break trips abroad, community service activities and inevitable rest that happen March 12-20 while Princeton enjoys spring recess.
