DWU scholarship day canceled Friday

Dakota Wesleyan University has canceled its Presidential Scholarship Day scheduled for Friday due to the weather forecast.

The Presidential Scholarship Day will not be rescheduled.

Mitchell is expected to receive snow throughout today, and as of Wednesday the majority of the state was listed in a winter weather advisory.

"We made the decision to cancel the scholarship day because so many of the students who would be attending are driving in from out of town, and would do much of that driving (today) -- when the weather is supposed to be the worst. We decided to cancel the event since it would be unsafe for those students to be on the road," said Missy Herr-Valburg, director of admissions at DWU.
