Penn State Cancels Most March 12 In-Person Activities Due To Forecasted Snow

Due to forecasted heavy snow, Penn State has canceled on-campus work and most in-person activities for Saturday, March 12, the university announced Friday night.

From 5 a.m. Saturday until 5 a.m. on Sunday, March 13, in-person activities, with the exception of Intercollegiate Athletics and Bryce Jordan Center events, are canceled. The events that’ll still go on as planned include the Sesame Street Live! shows, the men’s and women’s lacrosse games, and the men’s gymnastics meet.

However, due to the anticipated snow storm, the lacrosse games will be played in Holuba Hall and closed to the general public.

Additionally, the university is encouraging students to delay their return from spring break until March 13, reminding them that on-campus residence halls don’t reopen until 10 a.m. on Sunday.

The decision to cancel on-campus work and activities comes as AccuWeather forecasts 3 to 6 inches of snow with wind gusts reaching upwards of 37 mph.

Employees who are required to work on campus or perform essential duties should report to campus as directed by their supervisors. Employees who don’t perform essential services can stay home. Additionally, non-essential employees who are able to work remotely should do so throughout the impacted period.
