Anderson University Cancelling Classes Ahead of Hurricane Florence

Because of Hurricane Florence and its potential for bringing inclement weather to our area, Anderson University is cancelling classes on Friday, Sept. 14 through Monday, Sept. 17.

This decision was made 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.

As always, students and their families should place priority on their health and safety. Travel plans should be carefully evaluated in light of rapidly developing weather conditions.

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.
