WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (Purdue/WLFI)– Purdue University officials announced that all classes for Wednesday (Jan. 30) have been canceled at the West Lafayette campus. According to a released statement, they made the call due to the expected wind chill temperatures that will be dangerous for students walking to and from classes. Purdue said though classes are canceled, all university employees should report for normal campus duty at their regular time.
