University to Begin In-Person Operations at 11 a.m.; Classes and Activities With a Start Time Before 11 a.m. Are Canceled Friday, Feb. 25
Syracuse University will begin in-person business operations at 11 a.m., Friday, Feb. 25, to allow additional time for faculty, staff and commuting students to make their way to campus safely. In-person classes and activities with a start time before 11 a.m. have been canceled; online classes will go on as scheduled. This decision was made following consultation with the University’s independent weather consultant, who advised the early morning commute could be hazardous.
Faculty, staff and commuting students should assess their travel conditions prior to departure and coordinate with their supervisors and faculty regarding their commute to and from campus. All campus buses and trolleys will be operational, although there may be delays.
Additional details regarding today’s operations include:
- Goldstein Student Center on South Campus and Schine Student Center on North Campus will open at 11 a.m.
- The Barnes Center at The Arch and all other satellite recreation facilities will open at 11 a.m.
- Bird Library, Carnegie Library and the King + King Architecture Library will open at 11 a.m.
- COVID-19 testing today will be at Kimmel (not the Stadium Testing Center) from noon to 1 p.m.
The University will continue to monitor weather conditions and share additional updates should further operational changes become necessary. In the event of continued inclement weather and if additional schedule changes become necessary, updated information will be announced via the University’s emergency broadcast notification system and will carry the notice SU WEATHER ALERT. Please be sure your Orange Alert settings are always up to date in MySlice.
SU WEATHER ALERT information will be announced via the following communications channels:
- via campus email;
- via text message;
- via a “crawl” on campus TV monitors and University websites;
- on Twitter: @SUCampus, @SyracuseUNews and @SyracuseDPS;
