Extreme Weather

Rhodes′ extreme weather policy provides for making a decision to close or to delay opening the College when weather conditions warrant. There are three specific provisions for communicating that decision to all students, faculty and staff. These procedures will be used only if Rhodes closes or if its schedule is altered. If the College is closed or opening is delayed, all Physical Plant and Campus Safety personnel should contact their supervisors for information about their schedules.

  1. An email, voice and text message will be sent to your cell phone and email address.
  2. The decision will be communicated to the following local media stations, which will announce the decision. Please do not call them for closing or opening information.
