Elon’s campus will delay opening until 12 p.m. tomorrow, Jan. 18, according to an email from Vice President for Student Life Jon Dooley, because of the freezing weather conditions expected overnight on Jan. 17.
Students should exercise caution when walking around campus and are advised not to drive this evening. Facilities management staff have been working to clear main sidewalks, roadways and parking lots. Most sidewalks have started to be cleared, but some remain covered.
Since campus will not be opening until noon, the undergraduate class schedule for Jan. 18 has been revised to the following:
Regular 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. classes will now take place from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m.
Regular 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. classes will now take place from 2 to 4 p.m.
According to Dooley, graduate students should consult directly with their faculty member about the schedule for in-person or online class activities. In addition, Elon Law students, staff and faculty should check their email and the Elon Law website for updates.
