Syracuse University to Remain Open on Friday, Nov. 16
Syracuse University continues to monitor weather conditions of the overnight storm and assess 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 who reports that the worst of the storm has passed with only minor further accumulation expected for the rest of the day.
Staff from Campus Facilities Administration & Services are working to clear snow that has accumulated in the past few hours on campus roadways, sidewalks and stairwells.
Based on current conditions and weather forecasting, the University expects to remain fully 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. Anyone traveling to campus by vehicle should consider adding time for slower travel on main roads and streets. If community members experience weather conditions that could affect their safety when traveling to and from the University, they should contact their department head or supervisor, respectively.
The University will continue to evaluate weather and road conditions throughout the day. 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.
