Wiley College campus will be closed for in-person instruction and operations on Thursday, February 3, 2022. Due to the anticipated slippery road conditions, black ice on roadways, and hazardous ice on bridges and overpasses, faculty and staff will work in the virtual posture. Residential students should shelter in place, attend classes virtually, and adhere to the weekend (brunch and dinner) meal schedule. We will return to on-campus operations on Friday, February 4, 2022.
