Emergency Information
Friday, April 04, 2014

There are no emergencies or cancellations at this time.


Generally, because we are a residential campus, we want to keep classes and services for students as fully operational as possible. Please assume that unless you hear otherwise, scheduled classes and events are continuing.

That being said, to be mindful of a few important principles:

  • Safety. Be extra cautious on campus and community roads and walkways. Take your time, and assume that surfaces are slippery. Before driving, clear the snow from your vehicle, and be sure you have plenty of gas for delays and windshield fluid for the salt on the roads.
  • Good judgment. Those who live off campus are in the best position to know whether you should be on the roads, given your commute, your experience as a winter driver, and your level of fatigue. Staff members who choose to stay home must use accruals, but supervisors should be understanding and supportive of that choice. Turn to friends in town if you need a place to stay; if the floodlights are on at the President’s House, it’s a sign that you’re welcome there if you need a place to wait out the weather or stay.
  • Communication. Use the tools available—texts, email, ANGEL, phone—to connect with those you need to if the weather prevents you from meeting face to face. Faculty who need to cancel class should communicate that to students and their departments as soon as possible.
  • Flexibility and Generosity. When "business as usual" is disrupted, all of us need to be flexible in our approaches and generous with one another. It’s a good idea for faculty and students to think ahead about mobile, electronic alternatives as well.

We will use the website, email, radio/TV stations, and New York Alert -- which we encourage you to register for using the link at the right -- to communicate about any cancellations. Further information is available at this site:
