The day should start fair but end on the cloudier side ahead of a weak clipper system. No appreciable precipitation expected from the clipper but a snow or wintry mix shower is not out of the question especially Tuesday night. High today around 43. Low tonight around 29.


Assessment Day Workshop

Join us for Assessment Day 9 a.m. to noon Tuesday, Jan. 17 via Zoom. Our assessment workshop this semester will focus on assessment ranging from program level to individual course level assessment.
