Classes at Wheaton College are cancelled for Monday, February 11, due to the continuing efforts to clear snow from campus roads, pathways, and building entrances and exits. Also, organized activities are cancelled until 4 p.m. Monday.
The college will continue all essential services, including dining services at Emerson and Chase. In additional, the Loft, Balfour-Hood Center, the fitness center and the bookstore will be open during regularly scheduled hours. (Check the list on the right for details on what is open and closed.)

Dedicated crews have been working nonstop since the blizzard began on Friday afternoon.
