We WILL have class unless the University closes campus or things look too difficult to navigate.  Since class is from 8:00 to10:40, we should be all right.  However, do sign up for TWEN so that I can email you and keep an eye on your email inbox over the weekend.  I look forward to seeing you all on Monday!
