UO cancels classes Monday, Jan 9

The University of Oregon has released a statement postponing classes until Jan. 10. The postponement is due to extreme weather conditions that have plagued the entire state over the weekend.

The statement read, “While temperatures are expected to warm considerably in the Eugene area by tomorrow morning, the impact of snow, ice, and extreme cold stretching from Northern California to Portland and beyond has made it extremely challenging for students to return to campus in time for classes tomorrow.”

The statement continued, “There have been numerous flight delays and hazardous road conditions in many areas on the West Coast. For this reason, we are cancelling classes on Monday.”

Campus will be open according to the email but the new official start of Winter term is slated for Tuesday, Jan. 10.
