Canceling Classes in case of Inclement Weather
Lycoming College is an educational institution with a predominantly residential student population. It is expected that normal operations will take place on a regular basis regardless of weather conditions. It is assumed that academic and other buildings on campus will continue to be opened and serviced. Offices will remain on a "business as usual" basis throughout a regularly scheduled workday.
Commuting students should exercise caution and good judgment in dealing with potentially hazardous travel conditions. In case of inclement weather that may require the College to be closed, delay the opening of the College, or cancel classes, announcements may be heard on the following television stations: WBRE, WNEP, WYOU. The following radio stations may also be listened to for such announcements: WRAK 1400 AM, WRKK 1200AM, WKSB 102.7 FM, WMYL 95.5 FM, WBZD 93.3 FM, WILQ 105.1 FM, WSFT 107.9 FM, WVRT 97.7 FM, and WRLC 91.7 FM.
Once a determination has been made to close the College or cancel all remaining classes due to inclement weather, an email will be sent to all users on College email system. A text alert will also be sent using the RAVE system to all users registered in the RAVE Guardian System. In case of inclement weather, inquiries may also be directed to the College Switchboard 321-4000 or the Department of Public Safety 321-4064. An all-college closure announcement will be featured prominently on the College’s homepage as well as on the Inclement Weather page. In the case of a delayed start on a weekday, the College has established a compressed class schedule which will allow all classes to meet in shortened class periods.
Individual faculty who cannot make it to campus due to weather conditions are required to notify the College as early as possible on the day the class is supposed to meet. Individual class cancellations may be found on the Weather Announcements link on the Lycoming College homepage, the College Switchboard and the Department of Public Safety.
Students unable to travel to the College due to inclement weather when classes are in session should notify the Office of the Vice President for Student Life and Dean of Students, 321-4039, or firstname.lastname@example.org. The Dean's office will notify the student's faculty members.
