As winter approaches, please keep in mind that the campus generally DOES NOT CLOSE. Rather, we occasionally suspend classes or delay our opening time.  If classes are suspended, faculty should make up the lost time by assigning additional work or making the time up in some other way.
 
When classes are delayed until a certain time this means that students and faculty should report to the scheduled class that would otherwise be in session at that time.  For instance, if classes are delayed until 11:00 a.m. then students and faculty, who normally have a 10:10 a.m. class that ends at noon, should start their class at 11:00 a.m. and finish at noon.  Classes that were scheduled prior to 10:10 a.m. would not meet.
 
WHIZ TV and the following radio stations will be informed of our decision: WHIZ- AM 1240, WHIZ-FM 92.7, and Highway 102.5, WNCO- FM 101.3, WNCO-AM 1340, WYBZ- FM 107.3, WILE-FM 97.7, WILE-AM 1270, WCMJ-FM 96FM, WTNS-FM 99.3, WTNS-AM 1560, WQIO- FM 93.7, WMVO-AM 1300, WWJM-FM106.3, WCLT-FM 100.3, WNKO-FM 101.7, WHTH-AM 790, WJAW-FM 100.9, WJAW-AM 630 and The PROMISE 89.3.  Often the media will mix up the message and say we are “closed” when actually classes have been delayed but the campus is open.  We will try to get the correct information on voice mail at the switchboard and on the OU Zanesville web homepage as soon as possible.  Assume we are open on time unless the switchboard or OU Zanesville webpage confirms that we are delayed.
Please call the switchboard (453-0762) or check the OU Zanesville web homepage to get the correct message about delays or closings.  We also hope to have a text message system operational soon that will notify you of any weather related campus closings or cancellations.  Don’t rely on the media.  Travel safely!
