Severe and Winter Weather
The College monitors various sources of information during the normal hours of operation and will make every attempt possible to notify faculty, staff, and students of changing or adverse weather conditions.
We encourage all faculty, staff, and students to monitor weather information to ensure personal safety.
During the winter season please wear appropriate shoes or boots during snowy or icy conditions to avoid a slip or fall.
Always use your best judgment when determining to attend classes during severe weather conditions. If you choose not to attend, it is your responsibility to contact your professors.
If you need to park your vehicle on campus overnight, you must park in the overnight parking area on the west side of Lot I (the lot north of Tama Hall).
If campus closes or classes are delayed, how will you be notified?
Also see Delayed Start Procedures.
In the event that a tornado warning is announced by the National Weather Service faculty, staff, and students will immediately be notified to proceed to designated shelter areas.
Once conditions have improved and it's safe to leave the shelter area, Public Safety personnel will announce an all clear.
