Emergency Management/Campus Advisories

Campus Weather Advisory Update

Please be advised that a winter storm is predicted to start early Monday morning and continue throughout the day. College officials will be monitoring the forecast throughout the night and will issue an advisory regarding classes early Monday morning in order to give everyone ample time to plan accordingly.

Starting at midnight tonight, a parking ban will be in effect on all campus roads, including parking across from the greenhouse and Alger Hall. Vehicles parked on the road will be ticketed and towed.

Employees are reminded that only the governor can close the college. In the event that classes are cancelled, employees who by contract are expected to report to work must do so or discharge the appropriate time. 

Thank you and please continue to monitor the college website, local media and alerts for updates.

It is also recommended that all campus constituents register for college notification systems. For more information on the RICAlert system, click here.

We urge all members of the campus community to register for the college's RICAlert text messaging system. This emergency notification system allows the college to send an emergency text message through any mobile device to members of the college community for whom it has a mobile phone number and will only be used in the event of an emergency, including the small chance that classes would need to be delayed or cancelled.
