Snow closes university, hinders transportation


Students stormed out onto the snowy sidewalks after the Packer Express broke down near the Williams bus stop this afternoon. The bus struggled to climb the now-closed section of Sayre Drive near Williams Hall and Drown Hall.

At the time, the buses were operating on Transportation Service’s snow schedule, which went into effect at 1:30 p.m. today.

University police are monitoring the situation in accordance with weather-related incidents.

“We’re tied up with people stuck around campus,” said an LUPD officer.

All campus bus services will end at 5:20 p.m. today due to the inclement weather, Transportation Services announced in an email sent around 2:30 p.m. This includes TRACS service, which is cancelled tonight.

The University will close at 4 p.m. today due to weather conditions. There will be no classes after 4 p.m. and no evening classes, the university announced through a Lehigh Hawkwatch Alert this afternoon.

    No, they didn’t storm out onto the snowy sidewalks. They filed out, they disembarked goodnaturedly, maybe one or two stomped off bitching but they’re not a football team leaving a locker room or a legion of mothers with baseball bats. Please find this girl a thesaurus and show her how to use it. Or, failing that, an editor.
