Calvin campus closed Monday and Tuesday due to inclement weather; Classes start Thursday

The Calvin College Campus is closed the remainder of today and Tuesday, January 7 with only essential employees reporting. Essential personnel will be designated by their divisional Vice Presidents, and they will be asked to report. Residence halls will be open for those students arriving on campus.

College officials will continue to monitor the weather closely, but at this time plan to reopen campus on Wednesday, January 8 for the start of the college’s award-winning January Series.

Classes will begin on Thursday, January 9, allowing students an extra day to make it safely to campus.

Sporting events and practices scheduled for Monday and Tuesday are canceled.

Calvin officials are urging students to exercise caution in their arrival to campus and to e-mail their professors if they will miss classes due to travel conditions. Professors will not penalize students who do not arrive to campus in time for the first day of classes.

Residence halls will open at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, but students who need to travel today due to worsening weather conditions in their area, may move into the residence halls this afternoon. The first dining hall meal will be served on Tuesday evening.

All employees of the college should expect to report on Wednesday, January 8, but the college does trust that employees will consider their own personal safety as their highest priority as they travel to and from work. College officials encourage any employee who cannot travel for safety or public transportation reasons to work out a suitable accommodation with his or her supervisor.

Please continue to monitor the Calvin College homepage for any updates.
