OBU Policy For Severe Weather Conditions

Only during the most severe weather conditions -- which could potentially endanger the safety of students or staff -- will OBU consider closing or moving to a snow-day schedule. The decision to close or to adopt the snow-day schedule will be made as early as possible and will be released for broadcast on the following radio and television stations:

KGFF (AM 1450)Shawnee
KIRC (FM 105.5)Seminole/Shawnee
KTOK (AM 1000)Oklahoma City
KWTV (Channel 9)Oklahoma City
KOCO (Channel 5)Oklahoma City
KFOR (Channel 4)Oklahoma City

If there are no announcements from the above media, the assumption may be made that OBU will be operating on its regular schedule. The OBU switchboard will be informed of the decision by 10 p.m. OBU students and personnel can call the switchboard at 275-2850 or the University's News and Information Office at 585-5401 for 24-hour information regarding the University's operating schedule.
