Winter Weather Awareness

Winter Weather Awareness
Welcome to Nebraska!  One day sunny and the next day snow has hidden your car.  Never fear!  With a little planning you can be prepared to survive and thrive during a Nebraska winter.

Doane Campus Information:
Each Doane campus will assess weather reports and make decisions on classes or possible closings as soon as possible.  All community members should remember that in all situations you should never put yourself in harms-way by driving or going out into the weather if you believe the risks are too high!  If administrators at any of our campuses decide to close or cancel classes an email will be sent to all students as well as public notification through available local media resources (radio or TV).   The following are details on campus closing for each location:
- Doane Crete
- Doane Lincoln
- Doane Grand Island
- Doane Omaha
