Post Hurricane Update.

Hi there!

Despite Hurricane Irene’s recent visit, the campus looks clear and unflooded today. (except for a few minor puddles) Incoming resident students are expected to move in today, and it looks like they’re getting a beautiful day for it! The Library will be open until 5pm today, so once you’re all moved in, stop by for a visit! 🙂

Some small branches on the ground seems to be the worst of the damage.

The parking lot at Vaugn-Eames is ready for incoming students

The Nancy Thompson Library waits for the fresh new crop of students.
