Press Release from LSU:

BATON ROUGE - With winter weather in the area creating hazardous travel conditions, LSU will be closed through Friday evening. All classes and events scheduled after 4:30 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 3, and classes and events all day and evening on Friday, Feb. 4, have been canceled.

Faculty and all non-essential personnel are asked not to report to the university. However, essential personnel are required to report to their respective departments. Employees should check with their supervisors to determine if they are classified as essential personnel.

Essential staff members unable to reach the university due to road closures or other weather-related issues should immediately contact their respective supervisor for further instructions.

The university apologizes for the short notice, but the Emergency Operations Center was awaiting the most up-to-date, accurate weather information before making this decision.
