University Operations Suspended Thursday 2/8

From the Division of Public Safety, "The City of Philadelphia is expecting millions of people to attend this Thursday’s parade to celebrate the Philadelphia Eagles historic Super Bowl victory. This event will come with significant logistical and transportation challenges that will impact our entire community. Both SEPTA and PATCO have issued advisories that will substantially modify service on Thursday in order to accommodate people traveling to the City to view the parade. (See current information here.)

With this in mind, the University will suspend normal operations on Thursday, February 8, 2018. As a result, all classes and University-sponsored events are cancelled on this date."

Enjoy the parade, Quakers!
