    Anyone ever have canceled classes?

    The classes after 6 tonite were canceled by the university. They are supposed to let us know by 6 am tommorrow if classes will be canceled for the day. I read somewhere classes have been canceled by the university only 3 times since 1858? Don't know if that's true. Can anyone shed some light on this?

    I'm a senior now but during my freshmen year, they cancelled an afternoon of classes. If I remember correctly, it was an ice storm.

    Re: Anyone ever have canceled classes?

    The University has rarely shut down. It has done this twice in recent years, both in '07 and '08 (...or maybe '06 and '07?).

    Does not happen very often. Most likely you'll get an email from your professor saying the class is canceled, especially if they have students who do not live in Ames, or they themselves don't live in Ames.

    Feb. 2007 one afternoon/evening. I've had family at ISU from 1996-2008 and each of us had 1 day for a total of 3 in just those years.

    Yea back in spring '07 there was a bad ice storm that forced them to cancel classes on a Thursday afternoon. All classes after noon were cancelled...but IIRC we still had class Friday?

    They didnt actually cancel that next day, but many profs emailed classes and cancelled them.

    Thanks.

    I got a final tommorrow that I'm really hoping I don't have to take.

    They cancelled class a couple times in the 1996 and 1997. I think both times it was the start of the spring term. One time was for extremely cold temps -80 wind chill and the other time was a terrible ice storm ~ Cy ride was going sideways down Lincoln way.
