In spite of inclement weather, it is unrealistic to close a campus. There are numerous vital services that must be maintained such as security services, food services for residential students, power plant operations, snow removal, etc. However, if inclement weather is severe enough, class can be canceled, the campus can be closed to the public, and all non-emergency personnel can be directed to leave university property.
