U-Mary Delays Start of School

Posted:

Effects from the cold weather linger on...

The University of Mary decided on Sunday night that it would delay the start of school.

Classes were supposed to resume today, but due to the extreme cold causing traveling concerns, school will start tomorrow instead.

U-Mary used its emergency texting system, emails, and calling trees to notify students and staff of the decision.

"I think our students and our faculty and staff they seem very appreciative of the decision and I think it took the pressure off those who were trying to get here and kind of worried about the conditions traveling and that kind of thing so I've gotten very positive feedback," says Tim Seaworth, Vice President of Student Development, University of Mary.

Seaworth also says students were having trouble getting back due to flight cancellations.

For those who are already back and getting settled in, they say the extra day is nice and helps alleviate the stress of hurrying back.

"I had to move so I moved into my new residence hall and for the transfers coming back and all the people that are - it's just kind of nice to see everybody come back slowly but surely," says Ryan Capouch, Senior, U-Mary.

Seaworth says there will not be a make up day for classes.
