Hurricane Sandy Updates

Due to the safety concerns surrounding Hurricane Sandy – including high winds and the potential for flying debris – all classes, events, meetings, clubs, and activities scheduled to begin after 5 pm today, Monday, October 29, have been cancelled. This includes events and activities scheduled in SERC, Tuttle, and Seymour College Union, and will allow employees and commuter students to travel home before dark.

On-campus dining facilities will be open; however, we encourage students to eat early and return to and remain inside their residence halls for the evening. Eagle Run shuttle service will be suspended at 6 pm Monday for the remainder of the night.

If it is determined to cancel classes tomorrow, the local media will be notified by 6:30 am. All local TV stations and most local radio stations will carry this information. There will also be a message on the College's homepage, as well as information being posted on Facebook and Twitter. Please do not contact the campus switchboard as the local media outlets will have the most up-to-date information.

The expected path of Sandy

Regardless of the status of classes tomorrow, essential personnel should report to campus. Please review the College's Closing State Offices/Directing Early Departures policy.

Please continue to monitor the College's website for additional information about the storm and potential impact to campus operations.

Monroe County offers the following safety tips.

In preparation for the storm, residents should make sure the drains and the edge of streets are cleared of leaves to allow street drains to function properly. In addition, residents should take the following actions to ensure their safety;
