Winter has arrived at the University of Connecticut, plunging the campus into sub-zero temperatures earlier this week, and with that comes the complications of cold weather.
The UConn baseball team was supposed to have its home-opener on March 7. Scheduling a game in early March in Storrs, Connecticut left an approximately zero percent chance that the game would actually be played. Sure enough, it was cancelled, along with the next scheduled home game and the Huskies ended up playing their home-opener three weeks later.
The shaft weights over 500 pounds and could cause a falling hazard, Reitz said, so the building was cleared for the occupants’ safety.
In a Jan. 11 email sent to undergraduate students at the University of Connecticut’s Storrs campus, several UConn administrators provided tips on how to prepare for cold weather and outlined how the university handles inclement weather.
The administrators also welcomed students to the 2018 spring semester in the message.
Students received the email from Eleanor J. B. Daugherty, associate vice president for Student Affairs and dean of students, and P. Michael Jednak, associate vice president for Facilities Operations and Building Services.
