From OSU's Emergency Management Department after a decision to keep OSU open when all surrounding school districts have closed:
We would like to assure all faculty, staff and students that snow and ice removal efforts, which began overnight, will continue to occur throughout the day. Crews had plowed all roads and the majority of campus sidewalks prior to 7 a.m. Additional precipitation has created icy conditions in certain locations. Crews are continuing to focus salting and ice removal efforts on sidewalks as well as snow removal across campus.
All faculty, staff and students are reminded to use great caution when traveling and allow additional time for travel and to call their supervisor or contact their professor if they are unable to come to campus due to weather conditions. All supervisors and faculty are strongly encouraged to use flexibility for those who cannot make it to campus due to weather conditions.
