Thinner Crowds Ease Retail Supply Woes: Black Friday Update

Due to the predicted freezing rain, sleet, and snow moving through our area and the potential for hazardous driving conditions, all in-person day classes starting prior to 12 p.m. (noon) on Thursday, January 20, will transition to being held online or remotely. All classes scheduled at 12:00 p.m. (noon) or later Thursday will be held as scheduled.

Additional information on the virtual format for each class will be provided directly by the individual instructor.

Faculty have been asked to prepare for online or remote sessions in the event of in-person meeting cancellations. These options will be determined by the faculty member and all questions should be directed to the Faculty teaching each course section. Faculty also have been asked to be very understanding and accommodating of the individual situations of their students who may have difficulty managing these alternative online or remote class meetings on short notice.

COVID-19 arrival testing being held at the Beckerman Recreation Center on Thursday will begin at 1:00 p.m.

Campus operations for residential students, unless otherwise noted, will operate as scheduled, though hours may be modified or changed based on conditions. Separate messages will be sent from the Peterson Library, the Beckerman Recreation Center, and Dining Services if any changes to their normal hours of operation are necessary.

Please note that only essential employees, as previously determined by their respective department leaders, should report to campus unless determined otherwise by their supervisor. All other employees should continue to fulfill the requirements of their role remotely.

If changes become necessary for Thursday's in-person afternoon classes beginning at 12:00 p.m. (noon) or later, it will be communicated by 10 a.m. Thursday.
