Sheridan College’s decision to close during the winter storm on Mar. 12 left many students wondering why the school was open at all.
A heavy blast of wintery weather made roads hazardous and visibility poor while many students were forced to try and make it to class.
Many students had assignments due, presentations to give and tests to take, making it necessary for them to risk the trip.
Many students were forced to choose between safety and grades. And some students say closing the school ahead of the storm would have given them a chance to avoid the danger.
In the hallways of the college many students told stories of difficult commutes and were confused why the college would wait until 1 p.m to announce the closure.
