According to the National Weather Service, West Haven got 11.5 inches of snow during Winter Storm Jonas. The University of New Haven prepared Friday night by canceling all Saturday classes and asking students to move their cars in preparation for plowing during the storm.

Students took advantage of the snow day by sleeping in and then sledding down the Harugari hill, the hills by the BSAC and generally avoiding schoolwork. In the past, commuter students had complaints about UNH not taking the roads into account when opening, when talking to students in regards to Jonas the complaints revolved less around the roads in West Haven and more around the poorly shoveled sidewalks and parking in snowbanks because of poorly plowed parking lots.

“I decided I would rather starve myself than go outside in the snowstorm,” said Caitlin Duncan, a junior studying Communication.

Sodexo also took precaution for their employees and closed the C- Store, WOW, and Sandella’s at 8 p.m. on Saturday due to the storm.

Classes were also canceled on Sunday, which included the cancelation of the involvement fair, the closing of the library, and various club meeting cancellations.
