(Stillwater) –Oklahoma State University is conducting final exams today and continues to monitor the impact of icy weather on its Stillwater campus and the surrounding area. Currently, OSU plans to be open on Tuesday for the second day of final exams.

OSU administrators will assess conditions early Tuesday morning and communicate that decision through normal communications channels, including the OSU homepage www.okstate.edu and campus-wide emails, as well as Oklahoma City, Tulsa and Stillwater television and radio stations.

“Students, faculty and staff are to be commended for making today’s final exams and other campus activities go as well as possible considering the weather conditions,” said interim OSU President Marlene Strathe. “We appreciate the many hours of hard work by our Physical Plant employees and the extra effort by faculty and staff to keep final exams on schedule.”

Students unable to report to campus due to the weather Monday and who are concerned about getting to their finals on Tuesday, should contact their professors immediately regarding arrangements for make-up exams.

“Students, faculty and staff should take extreme caution in traveling to campus and should always remember to make safety their No. 1 priority,” Strathe said.

To help with final exams, OSU students are reminded that Student Affairs is sponsoring free pancakes Monday through Thursday in the Student Union dining area from 10 p.m. to 1 a.m.
