Penn State Cancels Classes Wednesday Through 5 p.m.

The rarest of rarities has occurred yet again. Penn State, we have a [majority] snow day!

Due to dangerous weather, activities and classes are canceled through 5 p.m. for Wednesday, February 7 at University Park, according to a PSU Alert. To those of you with 6-9 classes on Wednesdays: We’re deeply sorry.

Only employees identified as “performing essential services” should report to work 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.

The most recent time Penn State canceled all classes (until 10 p.m.) was 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.”
