College to close at 2 p.m., Wednesday

Because of the local weather forecast for several inches of snow this afternoon and evening, Maryville College will close at 2 p.m., Wed., Feb. 12.

Maryville College is a residential campus, so certain services will not close or cease operations.  Pearsons will continue to serve meals to those on the meal plan.  Isaac’s will be open as long as Aramark has the employees to staff it.  Security will continue to patrol the campus.  As for rehearsals, performances, practices, games, etc., students should check with faculty and staff in charge of those areas.

All are advised to use their best judgment when it comes to driving in inclement weather.
