WCCO featured an Augsburg faculty member in a story about the up side of the recent extreme cold.

Emily Schilling, who teaches biology at Augsburg University, says the hard freeze is good for our great bodies of water.

“It means the spring thaw will likely come later because we have more ice, it takes longer to melt, and that’s really good for our cold water fish species,” she told WCCO. “They like the water to stay cold.”
