Tuesday’s winter storm and nearly a foot of snow has left many students asking a familiar question: What does it take for UB to cancel classes?
The winter storm, which affected the entire Western New York region, left unplowed campus parking lots and streets hard to navigate, Stampede buses delayed and many commuter students stuck inside their driveways with snow burying their cars.
While Daemen College, located in Amherst, canceled classes Tuesday, UB remained open yet again – a pattern that has repeated and frustrated students for years. Other local colleges Canisius and SUNY Buffalo State were already closed due to Presidents’ Day.
Students reported unplowed parking lots on North and South Campus as late as 4 p.m., causing many drivers to dig themselves out of the snow, as well as triple park and block other drivers from exiting. Unplowed sidewalks also made it difficult for students living on campus to get to the academic spine.read more >>
