We are happy to reboot the fall semester on Monday, and we hope campus provides a bit of refuge from the devastation from the last few weeks. Crews have been working diligently to prepare campus for your return, though some areas still need much work.
Though classes are virtual this week, you are welcome to come to campus to access wifi and other resources. Some instructors may be offering in person classes for those of you who may not have the resources to connect virtually. For those of you on campus, there are several parking areas that will remain off-limits for the time being. The attached map is color coded to show those areas where parking is unavailable.
The university purchased 500 WiFi Hotspots from AT&T, and those will be available for checkout starting Monday morning at 7:30 a.m. in Ellender Memorial Library. These hotspots will be available on a first-come, first-served basis, and the checkout period is 21 days. It is also worth noting that these hotspots work based on AT&T cellular service availability. In some areas affected by Hurricane Ida, cellular service remains spotty.
All classes will resume in-person on Monday, Sept. 27. We realize that not all students will be able to return to campus that week. For those students, college deans can approve virtual accommodations beyond Sept. 27. Please communicate your situations to your instructors.
Galliano Dining Hall sustained significant roof damage. Food service will be provided in the Ballroom in the interim while construction crews repair the dining hall.
