It's important to remember a couple of things: with flurries or light snowfall amounts, there may not be a message, which means the university is operating normally. When Western does send out a message, it will usually focus on one of three outcomes: that the university is operating normally (this is typically sent the day AFTER the university is closed or delayed because of snow, to indicate we are back on a normal schedule); that classes are delayed; or that classes are canceled for the day.
After you get the text in the morning, check your WWU email for more information, and plan your route to class using this campus snow removal map. Stay warm and stay safe! Remember to avoid the Arboretum during high-wind events, and that after a snowfall, proper footwear is essential on icy, slushy, slick or snowy pathways.
