Yesterday, Vanderbilt News announced that the Testing Center will also be closed today. These closures come in light of forecasts of 5 to 8 inches of snow and a winter storm warning, which is in effect until 6 a.m. CST Tuesday, Feb. 16.

Changes to VandyRide have not yet been announced after its closure yesterday.

“We will continue to share updates on campus services as they are available,” Bandas’ Feb. 15 email concluded.
