Alternate text


A “thundersnow” winter storm swept through Columbia Monday night and Tuesday morning, closing MU on Tuesday. Last week, MU closed at 1 p.m. Feb. 21 and all day Feb. 22. Prior to this year, the last time campus closed was in 2011, which included all-day closings Feb. 1–3, when snowfall at Sanborn Field measured 14.5 inches. Weather-related class cancellations also happened Dec. 1, 2006; Jan. 12, 1998; Jan. 19, 1995; Feb. 13, 1978; and 1949 (date unavailable), according to Missouri Alumnus and Savitar reports.
