2019 : MSU Cancels Classes for 7th Time Due To Cold

January 30, 2023 all-day
Michigan State University has called off classes Wednesday “due to anticipated and sustained severe wind chills below -20 degrees F.”

Classes will be suspended starting at 8 a.m. Wednesday at all MSU locations, the university said in a post on its website.

“While online instruction may continue, faculty will not penalize students who do not participate during a university-declared suspension of classes.”

It took MSU 110 years to call its first snow day on Jan. 27, 1967, following 26 inches of snowfall.

They have only canceled class a handful of times since.
