It may be the beginning of spring, but that’s not stopping Winter Storm Toby from hammering the East Coast.
At 7:11 p.m., the university sent out a campus-wide email for Wednesdays’ school cancellation. In the past, students have complained that the school rarely closes for weather related issues.
MSU literally didn’t close when we had two feet of snow on the ground and the sidewalks/streets were barely plowed yet they already cancelled classes for tomorrow..

“Oh, I was totally surprised,” junior sociology major Ally Coughlin said about the school closing for the storm. “They don’t close for anything.”
Coughlin left her Dinallo Heights dorm room and traveled to the School of Communication and Media building to study and have a change of scenery.
Thank the lord that MSU finally came through with a snow day… I’ve been waiting all semester

“I mean this snow storm’s kind of bad but the roads are okay,” she said.
According to the Weather Channel, snowfall is at 1-2 inches per hour. in the area. All snow is estimated to end by Thursday afternoon.
Is this real life? Did MSU really close for a snow day?
