Snow Info on the Airwaves
Now that winter is around the corner we may wake up to a knee-high snowfall any morning! If this happens on a weekday, don't just stay in bed! Instead, turn your radio on and tune in to Radio Bilkent 106.7 FM to find out if classes have been delayed or cancelled. Most of the time when there is a heavy snowfall the morning classes are held later in the day rather than being cancelled.
