Tropical Storm Ida Update

The current forecast still predicts that the storm will hit well west of us, but regardless, it seems that we are in for serious weather on Monday. We will officially cancel classes on Monday, and close except for essential personnel. This also gives you more ability to evacuate if you choose.

For on-campus students whose families live within driving distance, we encourage you to head home for the weekend. You’ll be more comfortable at home if we have power outages, and it helps us with the logistics of caring for the rest of your classmates if there are fewer of you on campus.

Please prepare today, as we continue to send out very specific advice about batteries and bottled water. And please pray for all of those who may be affected.
