UPDATE: Classes Canceled All Day

UPDATE (9:07 a.m.): All classes today have been canceled.

Just when we thought it couldn’t get any better, Penn State has canceled classes and activities for the entirety of today, Wednesday, March 4.

According to the update, with the combination of existing road and sidewalk conditions, the expected drop in temperature, and the forecast for precipitation later today, it is safest for all students, staff, and faculty to remain home and safe throughout the day. If you must travel, do so carefully.

This cancelation ends tomorrow, March 5, at 5 a.m.

This happens once in a blue moon, new students of Penn State — so enjoy it!


Can lightning strike the same spot twice? It seems almost too good to be true, but after classes were canceled yesterday at 4 p.m. for the remainder of the day, classes today are delayed until 10 a.m.

With the roads and sidewalks still a slippery, icy mess, it’s no wonder that this inclement weather is a cause for concern — however, Penn State acknowledging the issue of travel safety is rather unexpected, and much to the surprise and delight of the 8 a.m.-ers among us. (But for those with class at 10:10 a.m., like myself, no such luck!)

According to the alert, all scheduled activities and classes before 10 a.m. have been canceled, and students and faculty are cautioned to use their best judgment when traveling to and around campus.

Be safe, take precaution, and sleep in!
