ALERT: University Has Delayed Opening, Campus Opens 9:30 a.m.; Classes Begin 10:00 a.m. (3/1/05)

While there has been little accumulation of new snow over the last few hours, the blowing and drifting of snow has made the clearing of surface parking lots and campus walkways a longer proposition than anticipated.

In order to allow additional time to clear the campus, the University will have a delayed opening today, Tuesday, March 1, 2005.

The campus will open at 9:30a.m. and classes will start with the 10:00 a.m. period. The campus will operate on a normal schedule beginning at 10:00 a.m.

Students and employees are encouraged to use public transportation whenever conditions are less than ideal, as they will be today. If you will be driving to campus today, you are urged to make use of the NJ Transit parking deck and the campus shuttle bus service to ease demand on the surface lots.
