UPDATE: MSU will not resume normal operations until 5 p.m. Jan. 7; morning and afternoon classes canceled
The combination of dropping temperatures and climbing snowfall left students without classes all day Monday and Tuesday morning — but for some, the work has just begun. After a Monday snow day for MSU and many other schools across the state, officials decided to "reopen MSU operations and classes at 12 p.m.":http://statenews.com/article/2014/01/msu-cancels-all-classes-before-noon-on-tuesday All morning classes are canceled, but afternoon courses and the highly-anticipated basketball game against Ohio State at Breslin Center will move forward as planned. It is the seventh time in school history that the university has closed and the second time it has closed for two consecutive days. The National Weather Service in Grand Rapids predicted the high temperature only will reach 6 degrees, and wind chills might reach as low as 25 degrees below zero. East Lansing felt the weight of more than a foot of snow throughout the weekend, leaving city and on-campus crews with a powdery mess to clean. The staff at MSU Infrastructure Planning and Facilities, or IPF, have worked nonstop since Sunday when the snowstorm hit in order to keep roads and sidewalks clear, prevent pipes from freezing and remove snow buildup. About 80 percent of campus was cleared of snow as of 11 a.m.
For the second day running, MSU has cancelled classes due to inclement weather. MSU officials have announced that the university will resume normal operations at noon Tuesday.
Michigan's heavy snowfall has caused intense travel restrictions for students trying to make their way back to MSU. Everything from flights, trains, buses and car travel have been hampered by severe weather, often leaving people stuck in certain areas for extended periods of time. For economics junior Mike Fredendall who was traveling back by train from California, the weather made it nearly impossible to get back to Michigan. “Freight traffic delayed our first train into Chicago, so we missed our connecting train and had to take a train to Battle Creek,” Fredendall said.
The city of East Lansing has declared a weather emergency until at least 5 p.m., according to a statement from city officials. To ensure streets are cleared efficiently, residents are asked not to travel on public streets unless necessary. Parking on all streets is suspended until the emergency is lifted.
For the first time since February 2011, classes at MSU have been cancelled because of inclement weather conditions. Monday’s snow day was primarily called because of the low temperatures expected to sweep through the area, acting provost June Youatt said.
Fans weathered frigid temperatures to welcome members of the Spartan football team back to East Lansing on Thursday night. As the temperature fell close to zero, about 200 fans staked outside the Skandalaris Football Center, weathering the bitter temperatures for more than an hour as the team's plane was delayed.
PASADENA, Calif. – Before the game, it was about the middle linebacker. After the game, it was about the middle linebacker. When senior linebacker Max Bullough’s college career was proclaimed dead via an email in the wee hours of Dec. 26, it jolted the MSU community which was readying itself for the biggest game in more than two decades.
PASADENA, Calif. – MSU ended its longest Rose Bowl draught since its maiden voyage to Pasadena, Calif., in 1954 with a 24-20 victory against Stanford in the 100th anniversary of the legendary game. The Spartans lost the first quarter, but dominated the final three in front of an amped up crowd, most of which was draped in green.
PASADENA, Calif. – What many pegged as a physical, low-scoring affair and one of the most even matchups of the bowl season is living up to its billing through 30 minutes.
PASADENA, Calif. – Mark Dantonio proclaimed it and made good on his word. After the head coach told his team last winter “you will be the ones,” he fulfilled his own prophecy by leading No. 4 MSU to the Rose Bowl – the program’s first since 1988.
