University Delayed Opening

By Contributing Writer on January 31, 2019

Dear Students,

Having met early this morning to assess the current weather conditions, I am writing to let you know that classes will be delayed today. All classes before 9:55 a.m. are canceled. Essential personnel as defined in Colgate’s emergency closing policy should work their normal schedule.

I also want to report that we have been able to add extra vehicles to the Cruiser rotation today, which will help students coming from off the hill to more quickly get to class. We do stress, again, that students should wear appropriate winter attire when outdoors.

Given the significant response to yesterday’s message about the weather, the Weather Decision Group will plan to organize conversations in the near future with SGA to share more information with interested students on how decisions about emergency closures get made.

The Weather Decision Group will continue to monitor the situation throughout the day and will provide updates as needed.

Thank you.
Dan Gough
Associate Vice President for Campus Safety, Emergency Management and Environmental Health and Safety
