Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow

Once again, Junior! --Photo by HEH

It says here that we’re in for a boatload of snow tomorrow–anywhere from 8-12 inches. JTS and Teachers College will be closed tomorrow, but you can chalk that up to their high percentage of commuting students and faculty. As of now, open on its regular schedule tomorrow, and things will have to get downright biblical for a sledding-filled snow day: the last time the entire University closed was during the Great Blizzard of 2003 (when New York got as much snow as Washington did over the weekend). Again, keep hoping over at, which will have all further updates. And keep an eye out for snowball fights!

Also,’s “Busy” screen looks like it has a lizard sitting on the Northeast!

  • ANS says:

    @ANS Sad that Jim McShane had to go and prove the Varsity Show ’08 caricature of himself right.

  • Anonymous says:

    @Anonymous WTF, have they freaking been outside?

  • The National Weather Service says:

    @The National Weather Service canceled the Severe Storm Warning and upgraded to a Blizzard Warning in effect until 6am Thursday, with the heaviest snow expected to come around 2pm this afternoon.

    Roar Lion Roar!

  • MEALAC Student says:

    @MEALAC Student Really… they expect me to walk all the way to Knox hall in this????

  • Anonymous says:

    @Anonymous CU just updated at 6 am. . still open.

  • 2010 says:

    @2010 is there even snow sticking yet? (i can’t tell… top floor of EC…) also, if you want to guarantee a snow day, you simply must wear your pj’s inside out and backwards. worked when i was 7 and i’m banking on it working now.

    1. ... says:

      @... nope, no snow but i’ll try the pj trick

  • mixed reviews says:

    @found an event for a snowball fight on facebook already

  • rediculous says:

    @rediculous This is absolutely ridiculous, where is CCSC? Shouldnt they be doing something about this? its unsafe

    1. a.k.a. ridiculous says:

      @a.k.a. ridiculous CCSC is not Batman. You don’t just throw out a signal every time you need them to do something. What did you want them to do? Chain themselves to Low in the anticipation of a snow storm that had yet to happen?

  • Poor Commuters/GS says:

    @Poor Commuters/GS I know some commuters who live a couple of hours away. I’ve been to my friend’s house and I know for a fact that her train runs above ground. How are they supposed to get here? Columbia should be reasonable and just cancel classes. We all know that most of the professors will cancel at the last minute anyway, because they’re travelling from god-knows-where.

  • Anonymous says:

    @Anonymous Who gives a shit? This school celebrates misery. At least this non-snowday is thematically consistent.

  • will this be enough says:

    @will this be enough “NYU and Columbia have large residential populations. The others, not so much.”
    Whose side are you on ?
    and what bout grad students and GS students?

  • Anonymous says:

    @Anonymous \The Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory will also be closed and there will be no shuttle bus service.\

    It just got updated

  • Yeah this says:

    @Yeah this is ridiculous…pace, fordham, FIT, New School all closed
    Only NYU and Columbia are open this is honestly so frustrating
    What do they get out of this?????
    I bet all the administrators are sitting in the faculty house just cackling in laughter about the fact that they don’t wanna cancel classes

    1. Name says:

      @Name NYU and Columbia have large residential populations. The others, not so much.

      1. Anonymous says:

        @Anonymous Not that I like to be on NYU’s side about anything, but saying that they have a large “residential population” is using the term pretty loosely. NYU’s dorms are really spread out, and I don’t envy them if they have to walk to class tomorrow.

        Also, Columbia has a lot of students who live off campus–almost all of GS, grad students, and undergrad commuters.

  • Anonymous says:

    @Anonymous Columbia University, the only school in the entire Northeast that’s open tomorrow. And PrezBo says that we’re wrong to think that the administration doesn’t care about us…

    A lot of professors commute from Connecticut, Westchester, and NJ, so I bet a lot of classes will be canceled tomorrow anyway.

  • ... says:

    @... well, you know, sometimes columbia prefers to toss prudence out the window and play things fast and loose. it helps to keep the legal and health/safety teams sharp.

    dunno if i would play chicken with this kind of exposure when there’s so much to lose, but hey, keeps things interesting right?

  • sad says:

    @sad NYC public schools NEVER gave us a snow day. They expect us to be walking knee-deep in snow.

  • cc'10 says:

    @cc'10 there is no way this school would ever give us a snow day, we can’t even get columbus day off

  • but says:

    @but the website still says we’re open. grrrrr

  • closed says:

    @closed im hearing reports we’re closed…

    1. Anonymous says:

      @Anonymous from…?

    2. Anonymous says:

      @Anonymous From whom are you hearing these reports?

  • school cancelled says:

    @school cancelled that means columbias likely closed as well. remmeber the reason we had one study day was because faculty needed to be home with their nyc public school kids?

  • BC 2010 says:

    @BC 2010 All NYC public schools are preemptively closed…Bloomberg announced it this morning.

  • yo says:

    @yo the color of the diana is SALMON because that’s what vag’s usually smell like. get it?

    1. har har says:

      @har har hardy har har, DOUCHE. (That applies in more ways than one here)

    2. whoa whoa whoa says:

      @whoa whoa whoa Normal girls don’t smell like that. You don’t need to be telling the Bwog what kinds of gross girls you’ve been picking up down around Washington Square.

      1. HAHAHA says:

        @HAHAHA OHHHHHHH owned

    3. I TOTALLY says:
