Fargo-Moorhead college campuses open

FARGO - Most local college campuses are now open after grounds crews spent all morning clearing snow from sidewalks and parking lots. At North Dakota State University, crews began clearing snow at 2 a.m.

FARGO - Most local college campuses are now open after grounds crews spent all morning clearing snow from sidewalks and parking lots.

At North Dakota State University, crews began clearing snow at 2 a.m. today, said Bruce Frantz, director of facilities management.

The north entrances of many buildings were covered with 4-foot snow drifts.

Frantz said it's fortunate final exams are scheduled for today because that means fewer students will need to access campus.

The only weather-related incident at NDSU was a water line that froze in the Criminal Justice and Public Policy building at 1616 12th Ave. N. that caused the building to flood, Frantz said.

Finals that were scheduled in that building have been moved to the Memorial Union.

Minnesota State University Moorhead and Concordia College also adjusted their final exam schedules.

Concordia Dean Mark Krejci urged faculty to be understanding if students need to make up finals if they can't make it to campus.

MSUM kept students updated on the campus closing through the new emergency notification system.

The storm prompted about 70 new people to sign up for the text message alerts Sunday night, said Michael Parks, campus security director.
