Delayed Start: Testing and Arrival Tuesday, February 2

Dear Students,

As I write this message, we are still getting some significant snow in the area. We expect that the storm will taper off by late this evening.  Given this, we need to provide Facilities Operations with a little more time to get our roadways and parking lots cleared tomorrow and give our employees and volunteers time to safely arrive on campus.  Accordingly, we will have a two-hour delay in our testing schedule tomorrow.  Please see the adjusted schedule below:

Original Arrival Time

New Arrival Time









So, for example, if you were scheduled to arrive and test at 10:30 am, we ask that you now arrive at Walker at 12:30.  We ask for your patience, humor, and help tomorrow and in the coming days as we work to complete our testing schedule, which has now been compressed into a smaller window.

Thank you for all your thoughtful questions and kind emails as we work through this challenging situation.  What a storm!!
