The National Weather Service has issued an advisory calling for 4 to 6 inches of snow to fall this evening, ending by midnight. At this time, we expect classes to begin on time and administrative offices to open on time on Monday, March 2. We will continue to monitor the weather and its potential impact on the safety of our faculty, staff and students and will update the community as needed. Please use your best judgment, based on your own circumstances, in deciding whether you can travel safely to campus.
