Panic grew nationwide last night when Taoiseach Leo Varadkar announced that all schools and colleges will close for Hurricane Ophelia. During the red alert announcement, Dublin City University (DCU) panicked and searched for validation online over the status of their university and directly tweeted the Taoiseach a message they won't be living down anytime soon.
DCU may have deleted the tweet but we will never forget that they asked the Taoiseach if we are a college. pic.twitter.com/nJIvjsgsju

Of course, the university saw the reaction online and responded to concerns that the college was undergoing an identity crisis:

Twitter users couldn't rest and had to share some important life lessons with the university:
