Adverse Weather: Campus returning to normal operations at 8 a.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 18

Dear Students, Faculty and Staff:

The University is currently operating in Condition 1 and will remain in Condition 1 until 8 a.m. Tuesday, Sept. 18. Classes remain cancelled for the evening of Monday, Sept. 17.

The University will resume normal operations (including classes) at 8 a.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 18.

Even with our campus resuming normal operations, there may be lengthy periods of clean-up in other areas around the state and region, displaced and/or separated families, travel delays for students returning to campus and communities coping with physical and emotional trauma and exhaustion.

Students, faculty and staff should make the best decision for themselves in their individual circumstances on whether it is safe to return to campus.

Faculty are encouraged to be flexible and considerate as you work with impacted students to navigate missed classes, late assignments and rescheduling of exams. If you have questions, please contact the Office of the Dean of Students at

Faculty and staff who are not able to return should notify their department chair or supervisor. Chairs and supervisors are encouraged to be flexible and understanding, where possible.

Students who are unable to attend class due to Hurricane Florence should notify their faculty member. If additional assistance is needed, call or email the Office of the Dean of Students for individualized guidance and support.
