WSU, U Of I Suspend Operations For Thursday, Athletics Not Affected

PULLMAN, WASH. --- Washington State University and the University of Idaho announced they both will cancel class on Thursday (January 19) due to the weather conditions. Also, the Pullman Public Schools and Colfax Public Schools on the palouse announced they will not be in session either.
 
Students at Washington State University took full advantage once they learned the news that no school would be in session on Thursday. Students went snowboarding on the small hills outside residence halls, built snowmen and had snowball fights.
 
Folks in Pullman told the KHQ Local News team that the snow really didn't begin in the city until shortly after midnight on Tuesday, but now they have well over a foot of new snow.
 
The men's basketball game between Washington State and Stanford will still be played as scheduled at 7:05 p.m. at Beasley Coliseum.
 
In addition to the men's basketball game Thursday, the women's tennis matches against Idaho (9 a.m.) and Lewis-Clark State (2 p.m.) are scheduled to be played at the Simmelink Tennis Courts at Hollingbery Fieldhouse.

WSU Athletics encourages fans to take all necessary precautions when driving to Pullman for this weekend's contests to ensure a safe arrival.
