    the abbotsford aerospace centre should be shut, the way the snow is blowing around, it will get worse as the day goes on and getting home could be an issue.

    There are roads actually being closed because of whiteout conditions in Chilliwack and there are still power outages. Why is campus still open?

      I attempted to get to Chilliwack campus only to get stuck in the snow banks twice before I left my neighborhood. Chilliwack campus should be closed.

    In Chwk there are several roads experiencing major drifting. According to the radio, people have gotten themselves stuck and have abandoned their cars. As a result, snow plows cannot do their jobs. Apparently white out conditions on highway as well.

    Why would campuses be open today? Opening Campuses and then giving students the choice of whether to go or not is not fair (assuming the individual class is not cancelled). If you go, you risk injury. If you don”t go, you risk falling behind and missing important class lecture material.

    @ Bryan:

    I think it”s a matter of “oh crap we should have been open yesterday because it was a nice day out so we”ll open campus today to make up for it even if weather and road conditions are worse” kind of thing

      That is exactly what has happened. I decided not to go this morning, and I spoke to my prof who did go but said that she thinks it should have been closed.

    Hello, all campuses will be closed by 1:00 today so no school.

    I hope that ufv can make a decision earlier about closures. Rather then posting that schools are open, only to find out while driving to school that they have been closed. Very frustrating that we attempt to make the dangerous drive there only to find out that its closed. I”d rather the schools be more cautious of there students and just close schools unless all roads are clear to travel on.

    Thanks,
