Winona Student’s Social Calendar: February 28 – March 6

March 1st is Tuesday this week!  We are another step closer to some warmer weather and one step closer to SPRING BREAK!  Make sure to buckle down for this final week of classes before spring break and study hard for all those mid-term exams.  In between you studies this week, we have plenty of activities and events to fill up your time this week in Winona…


Do you have any announcements, events, or items of interest coming up in the Winona area that you would like to get the word out on?  Just let us know and we will post for you in our next edition of Winona Student’s Social Calendar!

Recurring Winter Events/Activities

  • Visit the Lake Lodge Recreation Center for some ice-skating or snowshoeing on Lake Winona.  They’re open Monday-Friday from 4:00-7:00pm and on Saturday/Sunday from 1:00-7:00pm.  A winter seasonal pass is just $15.  Snowshoes, ice skates, broomball sticks, and hockey sticks can be rented on a daily rate from the Lodge.
