Tuesday, January 29, 2019

DePauw University will be closed tomorrow, Wednesday, Jan. 30, as record cold temperatures and dangerous wind chills are in the forecast for west central Indiana and the Midwest.

The university will close at 5 p.m. Tuesday and reopen at 11 a.m. Thursday. Classes will resume with 12:40 p.m. classes on Thursday, Jan. 31. Because of the two missed days of classes, the final day of the adjustment period will now be Wednesday, Feb. 6.

The Ubben Lecture by John Kasich, which was set for 7:30 p.m. Wednesday in Kresge Auditorium, has been rescheduled to Thursday evening, Jan. 31, in the same venue and at the same time.

Members of the campus and Greencastle communities should be aware that the closing of the university will mean the indoor tennis and track center will not be open Wednesday.

The fitness center at the Lilly Physical Education and Recreation Center will remain open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. to those with memberships, including students. Please note that all scheduled fitness classes during this time are canceled.
