Caution Urged Coming Back to Campus



The Chancellor has warned all students and faculty coming back to campus to use caution and consider coming early or on Sunday ahead of Friday night/Saturday's Winter Storm.

Dear Students,

As you might have heard, the National Weather Service (NWS) has issued a Winter Storm Warning for much of Illinois beginning tonight and well into the weekend. As many of you likely plan to travel to campus during that time, we remind you that NWS says a Winter Storm Warning for snow means severe winter weather conditions will make travel very hazardous or impossible. If you can’t return to campus by this evening, we strongly encourage you to wait until Sunday to travel.

Your safety is our number one priority, and if you do not feel you can safely return to campus in time for classes Monday please alert the Office of the Dean of Students at

I hope your holiday was relaxing and fun, and I look forward to seeing you back on campus – but not until you can get here safely.
