Yes, I went to college in Nebraska, and I think the school closed just once in my five years there. It was largely residential, and even the commuter students tended to live nearby (within walking distance, though even that's unsafe at certain temps, of course).

Or the compromise might be classes after 6 P.M. were cancelled, since those had a higher number of commuters.

But certainly individual profs might cancel their classes.

I was always annoyed when classes were cancelled because I did feel like, "Hey, I'm paying for this, I want my money's worth!" But life happens and sometimes a prof has to cancel or the school has to close.
