On Monday, March 4, the University delayed opening due to severe weather until 10 a.m. with classes “held as scheduled,” according to a Tiger Alert sent around 5 a.m.

Only essential employees were required to report for shifts that began before 10 a.m.


“Individual faculty members who decide to cancel their classes based on the guidance offered on the Dean of the Faculty website should notify their students through Blackboard in advance of the scheduled class time,” read the Tiger Alert. 

This was the second time in the past two weeks that the University closed campus due to inclement weather, the first time being Feb. 20.

Frist Campus Center and all residential dining halls ran on normal schedules while Mudd Library and athletic and recreation facilities opened at 10 a.m.

Essential personnel comprise staff from numerous departments that are vital to the University’s safety and operation. These departments include University Health Services, Facilities, Public Safety, and University Services.

For more information about how to prepare for inclement weather on campus, the University recommended visiting their “page with tips on preparing for and dealing with winter storms.”
