APSU reminds campus of inclement weather

As the winter season approaches, the staff in the Office of Public Relations and Marketing at Austin Peay State University reminds students, faculty and staff that class cancellations, late openings and weather-related emergencies will be provided as early as possible to various broadcast media that service the Clarksville area.

If possible, all television and radio stations on campus and in Clarksville, Nashville, Hopkinsville, Ky., and other communities in the surrounding area will be notified of Austin Peay closings or delays in opening as soon as that decision is made.

If possible, all television and radio stations on campus and in Clarksville, Nashville, Hopkinsville, Ky., and other communities in the surrounding area will be notified of Austin Peay closings or delays in opening as soon as that decision is made.

However, students, faculty and staff are reminded that, because most stations accept information by computer only, often there is a delay between the time the information is provided to broadcast media and when it airs. This also may be due to a deluge of calls to media from schools and other organizations.

Occasionally, due to electrical outages, it may not be possible to receive closing information from the media.

Also, APSU's Web site, www.apsu.edu, will announce University cancellations and closings, as will APSU's telephone system's on-hold message.

For more information, telephone Dennie Burke, executive director of public relations and marketing, at (931) 221-7450, or Melony Leazer, communication specialist, at (931) 221-7868. — Melony Leazer
