SUNY Potsdam Update: Campus operations resume 

January 26, 2024 (9:05 a.m.)

SUNY Potsdam Update 

Classes will resume as scheduled beginning at 10 a.m. today, Friday, January 26. All in-person classes beginning at 10 a.m. and later may resume today, following the normal course schedule.  

Please take extra precautions when traveling to campus. Some areas of the region are still dealing with more dangerous conditions, due to the freezing rain. As always, we encourage you to familiarize yourself with best practices in wintry weather. 

Safety tips 

  • Take your time: Take extra caution on snowy or icy roads and sidewalks. Give yourself extra time, going slowly on slippery surfaces or in low visibility conditions. Before driving, warm up your car and clear all snow and ice from your vehicle. 
  • Trust your judgment: People traveling from off campus should use their best judgment to decide whether it is safe to be on the road.  
  • Commuter students should consult with their professors, to make arrangements for any absences. 
  • Employees who choose to stay home or arrive late must use accruals and check in with their supervisors. 
  • Faculty members who wish to cancel their own classes due to weather should inform students following the same procedure they use if they are ill. 
  • Be prepared: Bundle up - layers are best! Don't forget about good winter footwear, hats and gloves or mittens on long walks to and from campus. Make sure your car doesn't get too low on fuel, and always keep an extra snow brush and a blanket in the trunk of your vehicle.
