Yesterday, students from the University of Michigan created a petition to cancel classes this week due to the incelement weather. While we know now that classes have been cancelled for both Wednesday and Thursday, do you think that the University's reputation as being though to cancel classes has trasnportation implications?

How can the school ensure that students are safely getting to and from classes and other activities during harsh weather? What about students who need to commute to and from school, does this transportation issue come into play for applications, or maybe reduce the ability of students to attend schools like University of Michigan? Any other thoughts or comments? 

Looking forward to the discussion!
