Syracuse University Monitoring Winter Weather and Travel Conditions for Friday, Nov. 16
Syracuse University is currently monitoring and assessing weather conditions for Friday, Nov. 16. In particular, University leaders and public safety officials are evaluating 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, especially as it relates to the morning and afternoon commutes.
Based on current conditions, the University expects to remain open and operational on Friday, Nov. 16. 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 and 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 early morning. If a change in the University’s operating status becomes necessary, it will be announced:
- via campus email;
- on the University’s campus Twitter account, @SUCampus;
- on the University’s campus Facebook page, @SUCampus;
- on news.syr.edu and syracuse.edu; and
- via the Syracuse University radio station WAER-FM88 and other local media outlets.
Only Syracuse University’s SU News team is authorized to transmit to the news media and the campus community announcements about closings, work-schedule changes or class-start delays.
