If inclement weather forecasts have you wondering if MTSU events will be delayed or cancelled, bookmark this page, mtsunews.com/weather, to keep track of the latest updates!
If inclement weather arises that will affect university operations, MTSU will always inform the campus and surrounding community via:
All current MTSU students, faculty and staff will be automatically notified via email alerts from Rave regarding weather-related emergencies, delays and cancellations.
If you are an MTSU student, faculty member or staff member and want to receive text and/or voice alerts too, click here and log in with your PipelineMT username and password to update your preferences.
(Rave Alert FAQs, including adding or changing contact information, are available here .)
If MTSU classes are cancelled or delayed, the announcement will apply to all classes, credit and noncredit. (MTSU students currently are on winter break. Classes will resume Tuesday, Jan. 20, when the spring 2015 semester begins.)
All university offices will be open unless the weather announcement specifically says they’ll be closed. Overnight decisions will be announced by 6 a.m. the following day.
Students concerned about class attendance during inclement weather can refer to the university’s 2014-15 “Blue Raider Planner and Handbook ,” which explains that
… students will be allowed to use their own discretion when snow and icy conditions exist — they will be given the opportunity to make up missed classes should they decide not to attend. (page 24)
The Ann Campbell Early Learning Center, MTSU’s early intervention preschool, also has updated its inclement-weather closing policy. You can read the policy here and also check the ACE Learning Center’s Facebook page at www.facebook.com/ProjectHelp for its weather closing updates.
MTSU also tests its tornado sirens monthly to ensure proper operation during tornado warnings and other emergency alerts. A schedule of the monthly tests is available at mtsunews.com/tornado-siren-testing. That page also includes a link to locations of the safest places on campus.
The MTSU Alert4U emergency weather information page at http://mtsu.edu/alert4u/tornado.php also includes tips on preparing for tornado weather and a “Frequently Asked Questions” link to MTSU-specific information for tornado warnings.
