Guided by the University Closure Policy, UPEI's senior administration takes the decision to delay, close, or remain open very seriously. In weather situations where the potential risk to UPEI’s students and employees, as well as property, is high, the University may “close*,” meaning classes and exams are cancelled and services are reduced. UPEI reminds students, faculty, and staff that there are several ways to keep informed about whether they need to come to campus or not during storms, inclement weather, or other adverse conditions.
Congratulations to Jenna Mae Ellsworth (Women’s Basketball) and Marcus Power (Men’s Hockey), the UPEI Panther Subway Athletes of the week for January 30-February 5!
