Many Harvard students in Texas — some enrolled but living at home due to the coronavirus pandemic — were left without power this week as a severe winter storm pummeled pockets of the United States, leaving at least 47 dead.
In anticipation of 12 to 18 inches of snow and blizzard conditions, Harvard will close its central administrative offices and the Faculty of Arts and Sciences on Tuesday.
“I was under the impression that wearing a jacket made you not as cold, but it’s not true. It still sucks,” McKinley said. “I miss the sun too. It’s harder to be as happy without it.”
Facing a forecasted 12 to 18 inches of snow, Harvard has closed both the University and the Faculty of Arts and Sciences for the duration of the day Tuesday.
