Safety and Condition of Campus

Are any trees still dangerous as far as risk of limbs falling? Can students go outside?

Due to the continuing danger of falling limbs and to provide maximum safety and access for our crews to clear the debris and secure the area, the center of campus remains closed and is marked with warning tape and hazard cones. Students have been instructed to remain out of that area of campus.

Classes, Meetings, and Academic Schedules

Will there be any classes Monday night?

No. All classes are cancelled for Monday and will resume on Tuesday.

Are meetings and rehearsals cancelled for Monday as well?

Yes. It is important to allow facilities to work to prepare the campus for reopening on Tuesday and so all classes, meetings and other activity on campus, except as otherwise noted, are cancelled and will resume Tuesday.

When do online classes resume? I did not have power to access my online class?

As local power fluctuations remain intermittent, administration of online classes remains with the course instructors. Be sure to check the course home page periodically for any updates.

Will students have to make up days?

Professors are prepared to offer a full, complete semester of coursework as planned. Additional meetings, seminars, labs and the like will be scheduled by professors with students on a course by course basis to make sure learning opportunities meet full expectations.

Will we have extra time to complete assignments?

This is up to your individual professors. Please contact them for more information.

Will any classes be moved?

The significant majority of classes will resume in their normal location and students should report to their originally assigned classrooms. Although damage has been minor to our buildings, there is a chance that a very small number of classes will be relocated while those repairs are made. Notification will go out to students for any classes affected.

Will midterm exam dates be affected?

Your midterm exam dates are unlikely to change; however, you should check with your individual instructors.
