The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire has canceled in-person final exams on Wednesday and Thursday as the Chippewa Valley braces for a major winter storm this week.
The in-person exams are being canceled to allow students to safely travel for the holidays, according to the university. Students will be contacted by their instructors about alternatives to scheduled exams.
Residence halls and limited dining services will be available to students who decide to stay through the week.
All campus buildings in Eau Claire, Rice Lake and Marshfield will close for holiday break, and no services will be available, starting Thursday. Buildings will reopen on Jan. 3.
