Syracuse University Monitoring Winter Weather and Travel Conditions for Tuesday, March 14
Syracuse University is currently monitoring and evaluating potential weather conditions for Tuesday, March 14. As the safety of students, faculty, staff and visitors is the University’s top priority, University leaders and public safety officials are assessing anticipated travel conditions to and from campus. This effort includes reviewing the most up-to-date National Weather Service data and forecasting, and consulting with an independent meteorologist about what to expect, particularly as it relates to the morning and afternoon commutes.
Though classes are not in session this week due to spring break, the University expects to remain open and operational on Tuesday, March 14. Campus employees are expected to report to campus per their usual schedules.
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 their judgement as it relates to their travel.
Faculty and staff concerned about their safety should contact their department head or supervisor, respectively.
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;
• via the University’s Orange Alert system;
• on the University’s campus Twitter account @SUCampus;
• on news.syr.edu and syracuse.edu; and
• via the Syracuse University radio station WAER-FM88, as well as other local media outlets.
Only Syracuse University’s Office of News Services is authorized to transmit to the news media announcements about the University’s operating status.
