Campuses, In-Person Activities Closed Monday

Pacific University campuses and locations will remain closed Monday, Feb. 15, with the exception of the Eugene Campus.

Due to heavy snow and ice in the region, as well as the continued ice storm warning throughout the Portland area, there will be no in-person classes, activities or clinical appointments on Monday.

Online classes and appointments will continue as scheduled. Power outages continue in some parts of the region, though, so check with instructors and programs for any individual cancellations.

With forecasters predicting additional ice through Sunday night and into Monday morning, please continue to use extreme caution when outdoors, particularly on slippery surfaces and under trees, which can break under the weight of ice accumulation.

Stay Safe

Choose appropriate footwear and watch where you walk. Be aware of your footing, watch for hidden ice, use handrails, and put down your phone.

“Walk like a penguin.” Use short, slow steps, and step down firmly to put your weight on your whole foot.

Avoid heavily treed areas, and watch and listen carefully if you are walking under trees. Ice and snow can cause branches to break and fall.

Make sure your devices are fully charged and be prepared for possible power outages.

Avoid driving when possible. If you must drive, go extra slow, give yourself extra time to stop, and avoid hitting the gas or breaks in a turn.

If you travel, check the forecast and road conditions before departing. Make sure you have a full tank of gas and a stocked emergency kit in your car, including jumper cables, an ice scraper, flashlight, flares, a phone charger, extra warm clothes or blankets, and extra food and water in your car’s emergency kit.
