It ain’t spring yet.
After announcing that campus would open late Thursday afternoon, school officials said in the morning that all campuses would close for the day as snow continued to fall in the Tri-state area.
Ram Van service was suspended Thursday, and officials said it plans on resuming Friday.
Fordham has already made plans to make up two days in April, which were lost to snow earlier this semester. Both days will follow a Monday schedule.
Officials have not yet said whether another make-up day will be added for lost classes on Thursday. Rose Hill Dean John Harrington said it may not be necessary to make up.
“A lot has to do with considering the number of each day of the week meetings,” Harrington told Fordham Daily. “This is a first Thursday closing.”
He added: “The plan is proposed jointly by all undergraduate colleges and approved by the Provost.”
Experts say New York City will have received 6 to 8 inches of snow by the time the weather system moves out of the area at 5 p.m. on Thursday.
