Maintenance and facility crews are adjusting for weather and will treat as possible, but will likely not be able to keep up with the ice accumulation that is forecast, so campus roads, sidewalks, and lots may be icy until treated. All Red Wolves are asked to exercise caution and common sense, to stay safe today, watch the weather, and stay tuned for any updates.
