This includes events and activities scheduled in SERC, Tuttle, and Seymour College Union, and will allow employees and commuter students to travel home before dark.
On-campus dining facilities will be open; however, we encourage students to eat early and return to and remain inside their residence halls for the evening. Eagle Run shuttle service will be suspended at 6 pm Monday for the remainder of the night.
If it is determined to cancel classes tomorrow, the local media will be notified by 6:30 am. All local TV stations and most local radio stations will carry this information. There will also be a message on the College's homepage, as well as information being posted on Facebook and Twitter. Please do not contact the campus switchboard as the local media outlets will have the most up-to-date information.
