As warned by air quality officials, the air is terrible like it has been for the past two days. To that end, Pierce College in Woodland Hills canceled all classes today and tonight. "Because of the unhealthy air quality, we have decided to close Pierce College for the remainder of today," announced Robert Garber, President of the college. "Please have students and staff leave the campus as soon as possible in an orderly fashion.... Our intention is for the campus to reopen tomorrow, but please check the college web site for updated information." Meanwhile, CSUN resumed classes today as campus officials monitor the air quality in the immediate Northridge area.
