As the region continues to recover from this past week's record-breaking snow storm, the university is committed to ensuring the safe return for its students, faculty and staff. Regardless of the improved weather conditions, there are still weather-related hazards that urge precautionary actions to avoid injury. Be aware of:

* Reduced visibility in some parking areas due to snow piles
* Reduced visibility exiting and entering campuses due to snow piles
* Icicles on buildings and other objects that may fall
* Possible icy sidewalks
* Potentially slippery building entrances

Facilities crews will continue to treat snow and ice in affected areas of the campuses. To report conditions that may pose a serious risk of injury, contact Facilities Management at 703-993-2525.
