(Grand Forks, ND) -- Thanks to another round of winter weather, UND will close its campus doors again on Thursday.

The decision was made Wednesday evening by the weather team at the college due to continued hazardous conditions throughout Grand Forks and the region.

As a result, Thursday's planned commencement ceremony has been moved to Friday.

"After careful consideration of the forecasted weather, the University also will postpone the graduate student commencement ceremony, scheduled for 3 p.m. Thursday and hold it at 1 p.m. Friday," said the University in a statement released to WDAY Rsdio. "This will be in concert with the undergraduate ceremony already scheduled at that time. A second undergraduate ceremony, at 4 p.m. Friday, will take place as planned. All winter commencement events take place in the Chester Fritz Auditorium on campus."

If students eligible to graduate are unable to attend due to inclement weather, all ceremonies will be live-streamed at UND.edu and UND’s Facebook page. The names of all graduates will be listed in the commencement program, which will be available to view on the commencement website.
