The National Weather Service has upgraded the most recent weather alert to a blizzard warning. High winds, area power outages, advisories for no travel and I-94 closures are all factors that played into the decision to extend the Bismarck State College campus closure to include Friday, Dec. 16.

  2. Alternative plans are being made for the remaining in-person final exams and details are being communicated via email to students in those classes.
