— At least two windows were broken but no tickets were issued as the result of a large snowball fight on UW-Whitewater’s campus Tuesday night.

Campus police responded at about 8:30 p.m. to a snowball fight involving at least 200 people, and continued to deal with snowball fights until about 2:30 a.m. Wednesday, Sgt. Matt Schwartz said.


Two windows were reported broken in residence halls, and there might have been a couple of other windows broken, he said.


No tickets were issued because police don’t know who broke the windows, Schwartz said.


Throwing snowballs is against the rules on campus because of the potential for damage and injury, Schwartz said.


“There’s an ordinance regarding throwing hard objects, and it specifically outlines snowballs,” he said.
