  • OFFICIAL UPDATE:
    Due to the anticipated hazardous road conditions in the morning, and the restrictions this places on CatTran being able to run, the following changes in schedule are being put in place for Monday, December 10:

    **Cullowhee Campus**
    - All exams originally scheduled for 8:30 am Monday morning have been moved to 3:00 pm on Friday, December 14.

    - Faculty members have the option of administering these exams online at their discretion.

    - All operations at the Cullowhee Campus will be at Condition 1 (Reduced Operations – University is Open) until 11:00 am on Monday 12/10.

    **Biltmore Park Instructional Site**

    - The Biltmore Park Instructional site will be closed both day and night on Monday 12/10.

    - Biltmore Park students should check their email and/or blackboard for further instructions from faculty regarding their exams.

    Commuting students, faculty and staff should exercise discretion and good judgment in deciding whether to attempt travel during hazardous conditions. If you feel that you cannot safely get to campus, you are expected to get in touch with your instructors.

    As a reminder, please keep the following in mind:

    - Use your own discretion when it comes to your ability to travel safely to campus.

    - Drive slowly and keep a safe distance from the car in front of you. Give yourself plenty of time to stop, and avoid all distractions.

    - Shaded areas melt much slower than those exposed to direct sunlight. Use caution.

    - Areas that may look wet could actually be ice – use caution.

    For driving conditions on major roads, use the following resource: NC Dot site (https://tims.ncdot.gov/tims/)

    All WCU employees should be familiar with the Adverse Weather Policy, Policy #41. Commuting faculty and staff should exercise discretion and good judgment in deciding whether to attempt travel during hazardous conditions. Questions about the policy may be directed to the Office of Human Resources at HumanResources@wcu.edu.

    We will be assessing conditions throughout the day. If there are any further changes to exam or operating schedules, we will post the information on the WCU homepage at www.wcu.edu.
