UPDATE: Classes Cancelled Until 11 a.m. 1/31

There are no classes on Jan. 30 at Ohio State’s Columbus campus. Campus is closed due to the weather.

With a projected high of 4 degrees Fahrenheit (not accounting for wind chill), this decision still comes as a surprise to most. From The Lantern’s Antonia Sarpong:

in the last 40 years, Ohio State has closed 12 times.

The last happened in 2014; the university closed Jan. 6 and 7 due to temperatures of minus 7 and lower, with a windchill of minus 35.  

Make that number 13 times in the last 41 years, and be sure to catch up on sleeping, binge-watching that new comedy and huddling up around your nearest fireplace (or just stick your feet over a vent while it blows hot air).

If you have a job on campus (like, at a library or dining hall), be sure to contact your supervisor and see if they still expect you to come in.

UPDATE: Ohio State will reopen starting at 7 a.m. on Thursday, Jan. 21, and classes will return to normal starting at 11 a.m. If you were smart enough to schedule the bulk of your classes early in the day, you might even be enjoying another day off.
