Penn State Cancels Classes Through January 25 Due To Forecasted Snow & Ice

Due to forecasted snow and ice, Penn State has canceled all in-person classes, work, and activities until 5 a.m. on Thursday, January 26, the university announced Tuesday night.

From 5 a.m. on Wednesday to 5 a.m. on Thursday, January 26, all in-person classes and activities are canceled. No scheduled in-person classes may meet remotely, though, instructors can offer asynchronous resources for students.

The decision comes as AccuWeather projects 3 to 6 inches of snow in State College between the hours of 3 a.m. and 9 p.m. on Wednesday. Wind gusts upward of 23 mph are expected.

Additionally, the National Weather Service issued a winter storm watch for Centre County Tuesday morning as the storm works its way toward central Pennsylvania.

If you’re not sure how your classes will be impacted, here’s what you need to know:

  • In-person classes: In-person classes are completely canceled on Wednesday. Regularly scheduled in-person classes can’t meet on Zoom, as only asynchronous materials can be offered by instructors.
  • Hybrid classes: If your class was scheduled to meet in person, it’s canceled. If you were slated to attend remotely, you still have class.
  • Web classes: No changes.

“Essential” workers should report to campus as directed, according to the university.

“Employees who are required to report to campus for work and have been previously identified as performing duties essential to maintaining operations should report to campus as directed,” the statement reads.

The men’s volleyball game at 7 p.m. on Wednesday is still scheduled to be played. However, the university is urging fans to use “extreme caution” and take responsibility for their own safety.
