Many students enjoyed the snowfall that hit Grounds before the first day of classes for the spring semester by taking to the Lawn on Sunday. University President Jim Ryan announced a snow sculpture building contest — prizes for which include tickets to a basketball game this season, President's box tickets to a football game or a s'mores-making gathering with four friends, President Ryan and Dean of Students Allen Groves.

National Weather Services issued a Winter Storm Warning for the City of Charlottesville and surrounding areas, predicting the Sunday snowfall. Groves addressed the impending weather and its potential impact on University services in a University-wide email Saturday afternoon. Given that many classes will be held fully online this semester — only 27 percent have an in-person component — the University may continue with virtual classes, Groves said, even if in-person instruction is not possible. On Monday, Chief Operations Officer J.J. Davis announced that all in-person activity before 10 a.m. was suspended, though patient care services and synchronous online classes began as normal.

Any changes to the University’s operating status will be posted on the @UVA_EM Twitter account and on the Academic Operations Status Board.
