As the College continues to transition from the holiday break into the spring 2024 academic semester, a number of student-athletes and student leaders have already returned to campus. Additional student-athletes will be arriving on campus tomorrow.

As a result, we want all faculty, staff, and students to be aware that the College is currently monitoring the weather for Tuesday, January 9, 2024, as there is a warning for high winds and heavy rainfall in our area tomorrow.

At this time, the College will continue to observe its regular operating hours on Tuesday, January 9.

Please use good judgment and caution as you travel tomorrow to and from campus.  If you have extenuating circumstances related to the weather, please discuss with your direct supervisor or coach.

Thank you,

Kathy Daughety
