Millersville University will open at 10 a.m. 3/22

Due to Winter Storm Toby and the heavy snowfall, Millersville University will open at 10 a.m. on March 22. The grounds crew has been working hard to clear roads, parking lots and sidewalks, but needs some extra time in the morning to make sure walkways are clear.
