Winter Weather and Campus Information

Update: Monday January 6

The following information is on our campus Snow Line and is being sent to all faculty and students with Monday classes:

The seminary campus will be open Monday morning.  Staff should report to work in the morning, and our two doctoral seminars will both begin at 9:00am.  Dr. McKnight’s 1 o’clock class will also meet as scheduled.  If you have a 4pm or a 7pm class, please check this Snow Line and your campus email for further announcements Monday afternoon.  We will make a final decision on the status of our 4pm and 7pm classes no later than noon on Monday.

Please drive carefully and take appropriate precautions during this bitterly cold weather.


Update: Friday January 4 –

As we get ready for the start of our winter quarter classes on January 6, this is a good time to remind all our campus constituents that information about weather-related or other emergency closings of our campus will always be available:

  1. Via your Northern Seminary email account.  If there is a winter storm, check your campus email account regularly for important campus information.
  2. Via the campus Snow Line.  Call 630-620-2100, and when the recorded greeting starts, dial SNOW (7669) to get any recent updates about weather-related or other emergency conditions.

We also post information about campus closings on the public web site,  Information from the Emergency Closing Center web site is broadcast on local radio and television stations.  Click on the “E-mail Notification” tab to get an email update whenever information about Northern Seminary is posted on the Emergency Closing Center web site.

Wishing everyone a Happy, and a safe, New Year!
