Penn State Cancels Classes for Third Time in Two Years

Penn State is often criticized for its unwillingness to cancel classes. Despite the bad rap, the university canceled classes this morning for the third time in the last two academic years (the other two coming from a snowstorm in January 2013 and Hurricane Sandy in October 2012). The last time Penn State canceled classes before last year was 2007.

“Snow/sleet has caused Penn State to delay scheduled activities at University Park, including classes, beginning at  5 a.m. and continuing until 10 a.m,” Penn State said in a release attributed to spokeswoman Annemarie Mountz. “Classes or activities that begin at or after 10 a.m. will be held as scheduled. Only employees previously identified as performing essential services should report as regularly scheduled, unless advised otherwise by their supervisor.”

“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.”
