With the upcoming hurricane hitting this week, is keeping the University open really worth it? Many other institutions have already cancelled school for Monday and Tuesday. Hurricane Sandy may cause more harm with the school open than closed. With winds gusting at maximum wind speed of 75 mph the smart thing to do would be to close the school. The numbers never lie and with more schools closing in the upcoming hours the safety of students should be put first over anything. The liability of people becoming injured over something that could of been prevented is enough of an excuse to close in the first place. With the worst the thing happening is no school, the safety and lives of others are still protected by doing so.
