Western is operating on a regular schedule today. All classes, exams, and scheduled activities will be held.
Facilities Management crews worked through the night – and will continue to do so through the morning commute – to clear roads and walkways on and around campus. As freezing drizzle will dissipate this morning, community members are still encouraged to exercise caution when moving around campus.
Temperatures are expected to rise through the day leading to better conditions.
