Dear University community:

The University sustained minimal impact from the hurricane and no injuries reported. There were no power outages, no major flooding, and minimal property damage. The University has resumed normal operations, and will be open and classes will be held on August 29th.

All area mass transportation systems are resuming normal operations and expect to be fully functional tomorrow.

If any faculty or staff experience local conditions that prevent them from coming to work, please notify your immediate supervisor if you are a staff member. If you are a faculty member, please notify students via Blackboard and/or Angel and contact your department chair, if you anticipate cancelling a class.

Students who have not yet checked in should report to the front desk in Wilson Hall, on Monday, August 29th beginning at 8:00am.

UPDATE: Hurricane Irene and Upperclass Move-in

The University are busily planning for your arrival, especially due to the impending hurricane on your move-in day, Sunday, Aug. 28.

Because of the forecasted inclement weather, we wish to accommodate any resident who wishes to move-in before the storm begins.  As such, we are offering you the opportunity to arrive on either:

  • Saturday, Aug. 27 between Noon and 5 p.m., or
  • Sunday, Aug. 28 between Noon and 5 p.m.

By moving in on Saturday, we hope to minimize any danger (and sogginess) you might experience from moving-in on Sunday’s originally scheduled move-in time.  However, we recognize that you may already have plans that require you arrive on Sunday; we’ve ensured that you can still check-in during your originally scheduled time.

On both days, all check-ins and key pick-ups will occur at the Wilson Front Desk.

Should you move-in on Saturday, please remember:

  • The Code of Conduct, which governs all students’ behaviors, will be in effect.  You will be expected to make informed decisions and accept the consequences of poor choices.
  • Meal plans will begin on Saturday for lunch (Noon-1:45 p.m.).  If you are not on a meal plan, but wish to eat in the Wilson Dining Hall, discounted rates will be available for lunch ($7) and dinner ($10).  Wilson Express will not be open during the weekend.
  • Starbucks will be open both Saturday and Sunday between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m.
  • You must respect that Welcome Weekend events are designed for only first-year students to attend.  Please also remember that University offices open during the weekend will only be staffed to accommodate the needs of our first-year students.
  • The ARC will be open on both Saturday, Aug. 27 from 10 a.m. until 11 p.m. and Sunday, Aug. 28 from Noon to 8 p.m. for all students.
  • You will not be permitted to host guests until Monday (per Welcome Weekend policy).

We hope that these accommodations will benefit many of you and ensure safer travels.
