Iowa State University classes are in session Friday, March 2; commuters urged to check local conditions before traveling

Iowa State University classes will be in session Friday, March 2.

However, university officials recognize that many commuters may not be able to get to campus. While conditions on campus are relatively good, students, faculty and staff should carefully consider their local situation and heed official warnings when deciding whether to travel. I-35 and several county roads in the Ames area remain closed.

Faculty are urged to accommodate students who cannot attend class due to travel difficulties. Department chairs are encouraged to make allowances for faculty who cannot make it to campus, and supervisors are asked to make similar accommodations for other employees.

Officials will monitor the weather throughout the day. Watch the Iowa State University homepage (www.iastate.edu) for further announcements.
