Snow Causes Cancelation of Early Morning Classes

Penn State must finally be reading all of your jokes on Twitter, because for the second time in the academic year, classes have been canceled due to inclement weather.

The university has canceled classes and activities this morning until 10 a.m., the first time cancelations have been made due to snow since 2007. Classes that begin at or after 10 a.m. are still on as scheduled. Conveniently, the third big section of classes begin at 10:10 a.m., which meant a lot of curse words uttered as the PSUTXT alert was opened only to find out the delay ended at 10 a.m.

The call was made at about 5 a.m. this morning. State College was expected to get 3 inches of snow overnight, and anyone who was outside last night can attest to the poor driving conditions.
