Evening cancelations risk most of campus

Letter to Editor by Jasmin Foster

The decision to cancel classes after 5 p.m. is almost no different from operating on a regular schedule.

Given the fact that the decision was made between noon and 12:30 p.m., and it did not come into effect until 5 hours later, it poses no benefit to the people who wake up early to go to class and work.

The majority of the student population does not have classes after 5 p.m., and most faculty have left or are leaving campus. I understand that UK provides a large portion of the jobs in Lexington, but it does not compensate for the safety of the people.

Today was the worst day of snow by far this semester. The condition of the weather at noon will be no different from the weather at 5 p.m.

Without a doubt, classes should have been canceled for the whole day.
