Expect finals to continue, unless campus closes

Weather reports for our area are telling us to expect snow and perhaps sleet for the next 24-36 hours. We will continue to hold final exams as scheduled, unless the Madison campus is closed. You can check the UW-Madison web site for information about whether campus remains open at www.wisc.edu. Those of you who were here last fall may remember that campus does not close unless conditions are extreme and unsafe. See, for example: http://www.dailycardinal.com/article/1520.

At the same time, we do not want any students taking unnecessary risks. If the weather conditions cause you not to be able to take your exam as scheduled, you should follow the same procedures as for other individual exam-time emergencies. Step one is to call my office (262-8557) before the start time for the exam. Tell me why you can't take the exam as scheduled.  I will return your call as soon as I can.

Please plan ahead and be very careful.
