The university's closing includes all day and night classes, and all offices and university activities planned for March 6. The exceptions will be for operations essential to public safety and service to on-campus residents.
Employees designated to provide essential services should contact their supervisors if they feel conditions are too hazardous for them to travel. MTSU students, faculty, staff and other personnel should check www.mtsu.edu/alertupdates for further updates.
