SDSU closing campus in response to warning that blizzard could bring 18-24 inches of snow
BROOKINGS, S.D. — South Dakota State University is closing its Brookings campus in response to a winter storm that could bring 18-24 inches of snow to Brookings County.
The main campus will be closed from 5 p.m. Wednesday through 10 a.m. on Friday and all classes will be cancelled.
Any campus events are also cancelled, and only employees classified as “essential” will report to work.
The National Weather Service is warning that in addition to the snow, there may be wind gusts of over 45 mph in the area.
The university says that students living on campus will have access to food services in three of the campus dining halls, but is warning students to use caution and dress appropriately if they walk to any of the facilities from their residence halls.
