Furthermore, I think they need to think about the Bloomington campus. I know they are loathe to pay part time staff for a snow day, or perhaps loathe to deprive them of a pay day, but when the local xxx schools are closed, how do they get child care on such short notice? Contemplate how many students have to travel from rural areas? Nah. They can't even update local television about the closings they DO have.
Sorry if I am ranting a little, but the reasoning seems a little foggy and some clarification would be lovely.

In regard to radio announcements, class cancellations and campus closings will be broadcast on the following local radio stations: WLBC, WURK, WHTY, WHTI, WHFN, WERK, WHBU, MAX, WBST, WGNR, WQME, WBAT, WMRI, WCJC, WXXC, WMDH, PG14.
Keeping our students, faculty and staff safe is a top-priority for Ivy Tech Community College. That is why we have implemented a text message alert system to keep you informed of campus closings and emergencies. There is no charge for this service, other than any charges you may incur from your cell phone carrier.

Please stay tuned to your local tv and radio stations for the latest closure information.

A little off-topic, but what are the chances that one of the state's largest regional television stations, located in the state capital, isn't broadcast in one of state's major cities?
