University Shuts Down

When I arrived at work today I was amazed to find the BCUC campus, where studentgems is based, closed. Apparently due to the snow all three campuses were closed and would soon be locked up for the day (at 9.45!!).

Admittedly there was a lot of snow and I could understand them being short staffed or having to cancel some lectures as people couldn't get into work, but closing all facilities to people who wished to use them is outrageous!

I do not understand why facilities are being closed when there are enough people there to run them, particularly not-for-profit organisations such as Universities who wouldn't lose any money by staying open as on any other Thursday.

Needless to say I was not happy. This was made considerably worse when it took me 1 hour 15 minutes to get down Amersham Road / Hill to get home!

Poor Alex.

It is quite bizzare that it was closed for the three days I had lectures last week. And after I walked up the hill on Monday as well!
