This extremely rare weather event has raised several questions about our capabilities to cool campus buildings. We know that it is uncomfortably hot in some work areas and living spaces. We are providing fans to cool off many areas.

We have explored the possibility of turning on our cooling system across the campus — something that is not normally done until mid-April.

We have decided, instead, to “stay the course” for now, and here's why: The best weather forecasts are calling for the temperature to change dramatically within the next few days. Because of that, we believe that any move to “turn on” our cooling system now will likely result in extreme discomfort for students and staff, as the temperature projections fall into the 40- and 50-degree range in the weeks ahead.

Also, please be aware that a changeover from heating to cooling takes seven days for any effect to be felt, so even if we made the decision to turn on the cooling system today, the campus would not feel any relief. Also, turning on the cooling system without the routine preparation would cost, literally, tens of thousands of dollars.

We ask for your patience and understanding, as we continue to monitor the situation, make things as comfortable as we can for all of our students and staff, as we cope together with a most unusual March.
