Cox College Chronicle | January 2023

If you haven’t heard already, the most famous groundhog in the world, Punxsutawney Phil, saw his shadow on Thursday. If you subscribe to the weather predictions of a marmot, that means we have to endure six more weeks of winter. Sorry to break the bad news!

We hope everyone stayed safe and warm this week.
