Penn State: Cancel class on Jan. 30/31 due to extreme, record-breaking cold

0 have signed. Let’s get to 15,000!

Due to extreme weather conditions, we are asking Penn State officials to cancel class on Wednesday Jan. 30th and Thursday Jan. 31st. On top of an already dangerous situation with ice due to a flash freeze, temperatures are expected to remain at or below zero for a majority of Wednesday, Wednesday night, and Thursday. Wind chill values will be as low as -20 degrees, which can cause frostbite in less than 30 minutes of exposure (or the time it takes students to walk to class). No more students need to get injured walking to class.
