As of 5 a.m., the Tennessee Department of Transportation reports no icy conditions on any of the major roadways in Davidson and surrounding counties. Campus sidewalks, roads and garages are also in good condition. While it is extremely cold and will remain so all day, Belmont will be able to open today for the first day of classes to proceed as scheduled. As always, because weather and road conditions can vary greatly within our region, students, faculty and staff are urged to use individual discretion when making the decision to travel to campus in snow or icy weather.
As a reminder, today’s high temperature is currently expected to be 9 degrees with wind chills making it feel much colder. In addition, the winter storm has caused travel delays for many students attempting to return to Nashville following the holiday break. Students and faculty are asked to work together to address any class time missed due to weather-related absences.
