Winter Weather Update
Wednesday, December 15, 2010; 9:05 a.m.—The University will be carefully monitoring today’s weather and road conditions, and will continue to do so throughout the extent of the lake-effect snow that is forecast to occur through tomorrow. At this time, the University does not believe the timing and amount of snow will be severe enough to merit curtailing operations, as SU is primarily a residential institution.
Although it is finals week, some students and faculty who commute may encounter conditions that necessitate a personal safety decision in regard to their travel to the University. If this occurs, students and faculty should work with each other to make alternate arrangements. Also, any staff member who needs to adjust his or her work schedule due to an individual situation should discuss the matter with his/her supervisor.
If a change in the University’s status becomes necessary, it will be announced via a campuswide email, on www.syr.edu and in the local media.
