Dear Corvallis students,

Hers is some information about campus conditions today, Saturday, January 13, 2024.

  • Campus and city roads/sidewalks are coated with ice and then covered with frozen rain, creating very slippery surface conditions.
  • Avoid driving until the icy rain has stopped and deicing treatment can be applied to the roads.
  • Minimize travel on campus.  Avoid walking on frozen grass and vegetation so it won’t be damaged.
  • Expect icy rain all day Saturday.
