Where to get campus closure information
Published: March 13, 2012 10:30 AM
When The Evergreen State College closes due to inclement weather or other reasons, the best place for up-to-date, accurate information is the College's web site at www.evergreen.edu. Local and regional television and radio outlets are also notified, such as KGY 1240 AM in Olympia, the area's designated emergency station.
You can also call the main campus switchboard at anytime, 360-867-6000, to hear the operating status of the Olympia campus. If there is a status update, you will hear it immediately before the menu options.
Stations in Aberdeen - 1320 AM, Centralia - 1170 AM, Shelton - 1030 AM, as well as KIRO 710 AM and KOMO 1000 AM are notified.
Evergreen's Tacoma campus follows the Tacoma School District decision.
Students, faculty and staff should always evaluate the conditions where they are and make their own decisions about travel. In Washington, weather conditions can vary widely from location to location, sometimes just miles away.
The campus uses e2Campus to alert community members of emergency events by email and cell phone. Sign up for e2Campus Emergency Notification System
