MU will reopen residence halls for students one day earlier than planned, encouraging students to consider returning to campus early from winter break to beat the forecasted weekend winter storm.
Residence halls and the Plaza 900 dining hall will open at 9 a.m. Thursday, according to a news release from Vice Chancellor of Operations Gary Ward.
Plaza 900 will serve breakfast, lunch and dinner. Other areas will be open on a limited schedule.
The National Weather Service forecasted a mix of rain and snow Friday and snow on Saturday and Sunday. Temperatures are predicted to be well below freezing, with a high of 10 degrees on Sunday.
