OFFICIAL REPORT: Hell Hath Frozen Over
It's true. The University of Minnesota has closed due to snow conditions.
MINNEAPOLIS/ST. PAUL – The University of Minnesota is closing and canceling all classes and evening activities effective at 2:30 p.m. today, Provost Thomas Sullivan announced today.
"In light of current conditions and the forecast for severely worsening
weather, this is an appropriate measure at this time," said Sullivan.
"The mid-afternoon closing of metro area schools, colleges and
universities and other institutions made it even clearer that this is the
right thing to do."
President Robert Bruininks' State of the University address, which was scheduled for this afternoon, will be rescheduled.
