ISU classes in session, but caution urged for commuters
Iowa State University classes will be in session today.
However, university officials said they recognize that many commuters may not
be able to get to campus. While conditions on campus are relatively good,
students, faculty and staff should carefully consider their local situation and heed
official warnings when deciding whether to travel.
Interstate Highway 35 and several county roads in the Ames area remain closed.
Faculty are urged to accommodate students who cannot attend class due to
travel difficulties. Department chairs are encouraged to make allowances for
faculty who cannot make it to campus, and supervisors are asked to make similar
accommodations for other employees.
Officials will monitor the weather throughout the day.
