OSU main campus to delay Tuesday opening until 10 a.m.

CORVALLIS – Oregon State University’s main campus will delay its normal opening time until 10 a.m. for Tuesday morning (Jan. 17)and cancel all Tuesday classes beginning after 5 p.m. , school leaders say. With weather forecasts now calling for up to two inches of snow on top of rain and snow melt from earlier on Monday, university administrators are concerned about hazardous road conditions for those driving, bicycling and commuting to work. While faculty, staff and students are not expected to be at work or in class prior to 10 a.m., essential university personnel must still report for work. Conditions will continue to be monitored tomorrow, with determinations made then as to Wednesday operations in Corvallis. Information on OSU-Cascades in Bend is available via http://www.osucascades.edu/, and on the Hatfield Marine Science Center in Newport at http://hmsc.oregonstate.edu/.
