This Thursday, 75% of the country is set to have below freezing temperatures. URI will see drastically low temperatures on Thursday with wind chills ranging between -5 to -20 degrees. These weather conditions are extremely unsafe for both students and faculty members on URI’s Kingston campus. The National Weather Service has issued a Wind Chill Warning for Rhode Island and it's time for the university to follow suit and take action. With these temperatures, hypothermia can set in within just 15 minutes.

Sign this petition to encourage university officials to cancel classes on Thursday January 31st and shield us all from these brutal weather conditions.
