Alumni, We Want To Hear Your Worst Snow Experiences At Penn State

According to the university’s records, the first recorded cancellation due to snow at Penn State was in 2007 — 152 years after the university was founded. Penn State spokeswoman Lisa Powers alleges there were, in fact, cancellations prior to this, but they were not tracked like they are today.

However, according to all of the comments from alumni on social media every time Penn State cancels classes, Penn State never cancelled classes and wouldn’t do so even if the abominable snowman himself was terrorizing University Park back in their day.

Obviously, these conflicting reports are no good, so here’s where you can help! We want to know if classes were ever actually cancelled during your time at Penn State. And if not, which seems to be the case based on the aforementioned social media comments, we want to hear about the worst conditions you have ever faced to make it to class.
