Penn State Delays Opening Until 10 a.m. Wednesday

Update 7:34 a.m. Wed., Feb. 7: Penn State has had a change of heart and decided to cancel classes after all — through 5 p.m.

Original story: Penn State decided to cancel classes before 10 a.m. on Wednesday, February 7, according to a PSU alert.

Only employees previously identified as performing essential services should report as regularly scheduled, unless advised otherwise by their supervisor.

With a winter weather advisory in effect from 1 a.m. until 7 p.m. on Wednesday, State College is expected to receive 3-6 inches of snow as well as some icy roads and walkways.

Penn State decided to cancel classes in some capacity for the third time in the last two years. The most recent was when all classes were canceled last March. It also canceled classes before 10 a.m. last February.

Both of those closures in 2017 came after the icepocalypse, when the university was criticized for holding classes as scheduled before Penn State Senior Vice President for Finance and Business David Gray said later that night “we missed on this one and are working to improve our protocols to ensure Penn State’s response is timely and appropriate.”
