Hazardous Weather Update

Wednesday’s blizzard conditions in the Finger Lakes have caused the Governor to declare a State of Emergency in Ontario County. A travel advisory has been issued by County Sheriff Povero recommending no unnecessary travel until further notice. Faculty members are strongly encouraged to postpone this afternoon’s classes and to find alternative means to provide instruction. All administrative offices are closed for the remainder of the day (2 pm on) with the exception of emergency personnel who will remain on campus.


Meals will continue to be served in the Scandling Campus Center.


Tonight’s Pitch event will proceed as scheduled at 7:00 pm in the Vandervort Room.


We urge everyone to use caution when traveling by foot or by car. Should you need emergency assistance, please call the Office of Campus Safety at (315) 781-3000.
