Severe Weather Alert

By February 10, 2014Academics, Students

Due to the continuation of icy weather conditions, and for the safety of our students and employees, Delta State University will delay opening its business operations until 10:00 a.m. tomorrow (Thursday, February 13th). The second class schedule, which typically operates from 9:25 until 10:40 a.m., will begin at 10:00 a.m. and end at 10:40 a.m.  Class schedules will return to their regular times beginning at 10:50 a.m.

As always, Delta State University students, faculty, and staff should exercise caution and their best judgment regarding the safety of their own travel based on their local conditions. Commuting students should contact their faculty member if they feel it’s unsafe to travel.

Decisions regarding scheduled athletic events will be posted on the Delta State Athletics website ( and social media outlets and distributed through email.

For the status of other scheduled university events, contact the event sponsor.
