Spencer to reopen Saturday

Following a Friday afternoon fire, the University of Delaware's Spencer Laboratory will reopen at 8 a.m., Saturday, Aug. 30, with the exception of Suites 131 and 133, which will be closed until further notice.

App for safety

UD now has a smartphone safety app that helps prevent crime and enables police better respond to incidents, making students even safer while at school.

Most of the precipitation should take place on nonpaved surfaces as temperatures drop close to freezing tonight. There could be some slippery spots, epsecially on secondary roads, bridges and other elevated surfaces.

DEMA still advises travelers to take special care tonight and to be prepared for slippery roads and limited visabilities.

Members of the University community are reminded that safety is UD's highest priority. Students and employees should not put themselves at risk. Students who are unable to get to class because of the weather should contact their professors. Employees who expect difficulty traveling this evening should contact their supervisors.
