Wednesday, September 12, 2018 at 3:18PM

Due to the forecast impact of Hurricane Florence, Anderson University has cancelled all classes for Friday and Monday. 

This decision was made, accordign to a university spokesperson, to ensure that members of the campus community and its families can make timely decisions regarding their personal preparations, including travel, ahead of the hurricane’s arrival.

AU is securing additional resources including, but not limited to, extra food and water for the 26,000-square foot G. Ross Anderson Jr. Student Center, which is equipped with generators to maintain electricity in the event of a power outage.

Should the Student Center be needed on Monday to provide shelter for students, in addition to ample supplies of food and water, the facility will be open and fully staffed throughout the duration of any emergency.

Administrative and staff offices will remain open Friday.
