Penn State Cancels Classes Friday Due To Snow
Penn State has once again cancelled all classes and activities due to the huge snowstorm that struck State College on Thursday.
According to the Weather Channel’s Mike Seidel, 10.3 inches of snow fell on Happy Valley throughout Thursday and early Friday morning, marking the fourth-largest November snowfall on record. Campus Weather Service measured 11.5 inches of snow accumulation by the Walker Building on campus. The storm was severe enough to cancel classes not once, but twice.
The university decided to cancel all classes before 10 a.m. early Friday morning, but eventually extended the decision to all day.
This is the fourth snow day in three years — all classes before 10 p.m. were cancelled in March 2017, and everything before 5 p.m. was cancelled last February. There was also a delayed opening in February 2017.
Penn State used to be known for not cancelling classes through thick and thin, but it admitted that not shutting down shop after the icepocalypse of January 2017 was a mistake. OPP and Penn State’s police department said that they’d discuss how to improve future weather cancellations after that incident following that day.
