The Dingbat: Reminder that classes are ON today

Classes are probably also on tomorrow. File Elizabeth Wang

In the event of heavy snow or an extreme weather event, classes may be cancelled, but today classes are on. In the event of heavy snow or an extreme weather event, campus may also be closed and non-essential services curtailed, but today, campus and non-essential services are open. Classes are on.

You can expect your classes to be on and proceeding as they are normally scheduled. You can expect your lectures and tutorials and labs to take place. You can also expect to check Canvas regarding assignments and projects and readings, which you will need to have completed and read and annotated today, because classes are on today.

Classes are probably also on tomorrow. Everything regarding UBC that you might expect to take place, will take place, even special events, because there is no heavy snow or an extreme weather event. Likewise, classes will also take place because classes are on today, and not cancelled, and will take place as scheduled.

If you are uncertain if classes are on, you can check www.ubc.ca to confirm that classes are on. This is the university’s home page and it will confirm for you that classes are on. You will load this page and you will see that classes are not cancelled. You will see that classes are on.

If you are uncertain if classes are on even after you’ve checked www.ubc.ca to confirm, you can check @UBCnews on Twitter. If you see nothing that explicitly says otherwise, you can be sure, that for sure, classes are on.

Classes are on and this means our classrooms are unlocked for you to sit and learn in. This means our buildings are unlocked for you to walk in. This also means our non-essential services, such as food vendors, are ready for you to give them money.

Even though you may have hoped for the event of heavy snow or an extreme weather event, such that classes may be cancelled, today is the event of normal weather, like rain or rain. Classes are on.
