Classes or activities that begin at or after 10 a.m. will be held as scheduled; any classes or activities prior to 10 a.m. will not take place. Only employees previously identified as performing essential services should report as regularly scheduled, unless advised otherwise by their supervisor. 

University officials are continuing to monitor the forthcoming storm and will provide updates to the University community as necessary. The most up-to-date information will be shared via Penn State's PSUAlert system; and on Penn State News, Twitter, and WPSU TV and radio.

All employees and students are encouraged to take responsibility for their own safety. Faculty, staff and students should use their own best judgment when considering traveling to campus or the need to leave early during times of inclement weather.
