Early morning, evening classes canceled Tuesday

Posted January 16th, 2012 by UHDS News

Campus Alert: Oregon State University’s main campus will delay its normal opening time until 10 a.m. for Tuesday morning (Jan. 17) and cancel all Tuesday classes beginning after 5 p.m.

With weather forecasts now calling for up to two inches of snow on top of rain and snow melt from earlier on Monday, university administrators are concerned about hazardous road conditions for those driving, bicycling and commuting to work.  While faculty, staff and students are not expected to be at work or in class prior to 10 a.m., essential university personnel must still report for work.

Conditions will continue to be monitored tomorrow, with determinations made then as to Wednesday operations in Corvallis.

Information on OSU-Cascades in Bend is available via http://www.osucascades.edu/, and on the Hatfield Marine Science Center in Newport at http://hmsc.oregonstate.edu/.

For updated information as it becomes available, phone 541-737-8000 or visit alert.oregonstate.edu, the university’s emergency information portal.

UPDATE: Prepare for winds, outages on Wednesday

There is a high wind watch for Corvallis on Wednesday. UHDS encourages on-campus residents to take the following actions today to get ready:

1) if you have a personal flashlight make sure the batteries are good, if you don’t have one consider getting one

2) if you have a cellphone be sure to have it be fully charged by Wednesday morning

3) consider getting a few non-perishable/easy to eat snack and drink items to have on hand

4) pay attention to the weather, your room voice mail and your onid email today and Wednesday.
