Officials from Connecticut Light and Power have informed us that Wesleyan won’t have power or heat for at least 24 hours and perhaps longer. Therefore, we are canceling classes on Monday. Faculty and staff are requested to stay home, except for essential personnel. It will be cold tonight in Wesleyan’s residences. Students may wish to leave campus; alternatively, if you expect your housing to be unreasonably cold, you may bring blankets and a pillow to the Science Library beginning at 4 pm. A continental breakfast will be available at the Usdan Center Monday starting at 9 am., but no food services will be available before then.
If you stay on campus, please remain inside with the windows closed. Please stay away from downed power lines and trees. Do not use candles or anything else that would create a danger of fire. We will provide another update early Monday afternoon.
