Questions arise after local college stays open

Posted: Updated:

Not only were schools closed Tuesday, most universities also told their students to stay home, including Central Michigan University and Saginaw Valley State University.

But not Delta College. Classes were in session all day. The bitter cold was the driving force behind hundreds of school closings.

But students who continually checked the website of Delta College were left out in the cold.

Students at the college made the trip to class despite the frigid temps while other college kids are staying home. Many reached out to TV5 on our Facebook page looking for us to ask the tough questions.

But school administrator David Peruski believes students are protected from the elements with few risk to their safety.

"Our classrooms are connected within one building and so no one has to travel in and out of buildings or to other sites once they're here," says Peruski.

So classes are in session despite the frigid temps, so TV5 wanted to know, what does it take to close the school down.

"We've taken each situation, we look at it individually and we try to the pieces together to determine what makes the most sense," says Peruski.

Delta has had one snow day so far this semester.
