Hurricane Sandy (Cohen): Despite state of emergency, classes are still on for tomorrow

Amid some speculation and the announced closings of many public school systems in the Northeast, Brown has officially decided to hold classes as scheduled tomorrow. Governor Lincoln Chafee ’75 P’14 may have declared a state of emergency for the state of Rhode Island in advance of the arrival of Hurricane Sandy (Cohen)—the “Frankenstorm“—but you should keep studying for whatever midterms you have for tomorrow.

But who knows: maybe sleeping with spoons under our pillows and our pajamas inside out will be just enough to turn the tide (hurricane puns!) to make tomorrow a Hurricane Day. The responsible college student in us should probably consider making a quick run to Campus Market, Tedeschi (too soon!) or Eastside Marketplace to stock up on some non-perishable foodstuffs.
