Breaking News: GW closes Tuesday

Posted 6:30 p.m. Feb. 18- University officials announced Monday afternoon that GW will be closed Tuesday due to severe weather conditions.

Senior Vice President for Student and Academic Support Services Robert Chernak said road conditions in the District, Maryland and Virginia prompted the University to decide to close at about 6:20p.m.

He also said the University took into account that many students are stranded out of town for the long weekend and that Mayor Anthony Williams has asked that people avoid traveling to the city until snow from the weekend’s blizzard can be cleared.

Catholic and Georgetown Universities will also be closed Tuesday.
