“It was the first snow of the season, and while most Scranton students walked through campus unfazed, one student was quite literally jumping for joy. First-year student Bailechesel “OJ” Tumechub is from Palau, an island country of sunshine and palm trees, a place where the temperature averages from 76 degrees to 89 degrees throughout the year.
“I was walking and the snow was hitting my face,” said Tumechub. “At first I thought it was rain. I thought, ‘What is this?’ When I realized it was snow, I started jumping. I put my tongue out to catch it.”- Excerpt from Scranton Journal- follow the story at: http://www.scranton.edu/alumni/journal/issues/2017/spring/features/a-30-year-journey.shtml
