Syracuse University Monitoring Winter Weather and Travel Conditions for Thursday, December 15, and Friday, December 16
Syracuse University is currently monitoring the winter weather, specifically the bands of lake effect snow and anticipated extreme temperatures, and assessing travel conditions. This effort includes reviewing the most up-to-date National Weather Service data and forecasting, and consulting with an independent meteorologist.
Based on accumulation forecasts and current conditions, the University expects to remain fully open and operational on Thursday, December 15, and Friday, December 16. While the University is aware of the present and forthcoming winter weather, it is simply not logistically possible to cancel campus activities during the last two days of finals.
Students, faculty and staff are expected to report to campus. However, and as always, campus community members should be aware and take precautions when severe weather is in the area. If community members experience weather conditions that could affect their safety when traveling to/from the University, they are encouraged to use your judgement as it relates to your travel.
Faculty and staff concerned about their safety should contact their department head or supervisor, respectively. Students should contact their professors if the winter weather poses a threat to their safety.
The University will continue to evaluate weather and road conditions through the evening and into the early morning hours. If a change in the University’s operating status becomes necessary, it will be announced;
