Weather Related Closings and Information

As the winter season approaches, the Office of Public Relations and Marketing at Austin Peay State University reminds students, faculty and staff that information about the closing or late opening of the University will be provided as early as possible to various broadcast media — to include television, radio and online — that service the Clarksville area.

If possible, all television and radio stations on campus and in Clarksville, Nashville, Hopkinsville, Ky., and other communities in the surrounding area will be notified of APSU closings or delays in opening as soon as that decision is made.

However, students, faculty and staff are reminded that because most stations accept information by computer only, often there is a delay between the time the information is provided to broadcast media and when it airs. This may be due to a deluge of calls to media from other schools and other organizations.

Occasionally, due to electrical outages, it may not be possible to receive closing information from the media. That’s why APSU has other communication venues in place.  

APSU’s website, http://www.apsu.edu, will announce University cancellations and closings, as will APSU’s text-messaging service, AP Alert. To sign up for AP Alert, visit https://www.getrave.com/login/apsu. Additionally, if you have the Peay Mobile or New Gov mobile app, you will receive push notifications about any weather-related announcements impacting APSU.

Plus, these announcements will be posted on the University’s various social media venues:
