Wright State University’s (WSU) Dayton and Lake campuses will move all classes and operations remotely to the end of the week starting today at 4 p.m. for Lake campus and tomorrow at 8 a.m. for Dayton campus due to a winter weather warning.

Classes moved online 

Both the Dayton and Lake campuses decided to move all classes and operations remotely in anticipation of the upcoming winter storm. 

According to campus-wide alerts, the Lake campus will close and move to a remote format starting on Feb. 2 at 4 p.m., while the Dayton campus will close and move remotely beginning on Thursday, Feb. 3, at 8 a.m.

This change will extend through Friday; both campuses will open and resume in-person instruction on Feb. 7.

Students are instructed to reach out to their professors for remote instruction details, and essential workers are instructed to move remotely for these days.

“Remote, online and flexible delivery classes will take place without change as scheduled,” the alert states. “Students should check with their professors to how in-person class schedules are impacted.”
