The spring 2016 semester is set to begin Monday, Jan. 11. However, a snowstorm that lasted from late Saturday, Jan. 9 to Sunday, Jan. 10 has caused IU Southeast to have a two-hour delay the first day of the semester, according to an IU Southeast alert.

The alert was communicated to students, faculty and staff at around 9:10 p.m. Jan. 10. The text alert said:

“IU Southeast Alert: IU Southeast is on a delayed schedule due to winter weather. Check for more information.”

After the alert was announced, the IU Southeast website experienced technical issues due to high website traffic. The two-hour delay snow schedule from the website is below.
