According to Penn State News, the Kanye West concert scheduled for tonight at the Bryce Jordan Center will go on according to plan.
The campus and town are in a “snow emergency,” which means all cars must be moved from streets and outside lots by midnight tonight.
For those commuting home from campus, be safe!
