Today even in the face of over 10 inches of snow Temple University classes and facilities remain open. Though Philadelphia has called a state of emergency and most, if not all schools in our area are closed, buses, trains, and airports are all closed,we remain open. As of yet Temple has not clearly explained to students what their inclement weather policy is or what conditions would constitute them closing. So many of our students commute to school and will have to miss class and work because the conditions are too dangerous. This shows and utter disregard for students, faculty, and staff's safety and well being. The shuttles from Ambler to main campus WERE NOT be running today, but no one was told. This is unacceptable! I know it often seems you can't make a change at your university. But by signing this petition and inviting your friends you will no longer just be one voice. You will join a loud chorus which says to Temple clearly and boldly; OUR SAFETY COMES FIRST!

We also demand that the inclement weather policy and rationale be distributed to the student body as soon as possible. In addition we want the administration to issue a memo to professors who did not cancel class and ask them to excuse students who were not able to attend because of the cancellations and delays of public transportation. As students we are the life force of this university and we will NOT be ignored.
