The University web page will state whether or not classes will be in session due to inclement weather. You may also call the Activity Line/Weather and Class Status, 978-6633, option 2. Local media (radio and television) are alerted to closings due to inclement weather. Decisions on whether to close campus are generally made by 6:00 am for morning classes and by 3:00 pm for evening sessions.
Please refrain from calling the police department to check on class cancellations.
