Laziness and procrastination will most definitely be reflected in your grades. Inclement Weather Policy The university has an obligation to remain open in spite of inclement weather. However, that obligation must be balanced with the risk of danger to commuting students. If severe and unexpected conditions should force the University to close offices and classrooms, the chancellor will instruct the Office of University Relations to notify area media which will then publicize the decision. Unless the University is officially closed, faculty and students must make their own decisions about the safety of commuting. Adjustments to homework will be made accordingly if and only if necessary.
