In the wake of the most destructive wildfire in California’s history, Stanford students, faculty and organizations are mobilizing to contribute to national relief efforts.
On Nov. 16, the Big Game was postponed to Dec. 1 at 12:00 p.m. due to dangerous smoke levels from Camp Fire.
Stanford cancelled Friday classes in an Emergency Information announcement made at 9:46 p.m. Thursday night. The decision followed a 7-hour span in which both the smoke and student outcry grew increasingly prominent on campus.
Throughout the weekend, three California fires — one east of Chico and two west of Los Angeles — killed at least 31 people as of Sunday night and destroyed many more homes and communities.
Smoke from rampant North Bay wildfires enveloped Stanford campus and the surrounding Bay Area Wednesday, prompting the University to release an AlertSU Community Alert warned the community of the substandard air quality.
