Health Update: Preparing for Return to Campus

Hurricane Laura Resources

08.25.20

Hurricane Laura is expected to intensify over the Gulf of Mexico and become a major hurricane prior to striking the upper Texas or southwest Louisiana coasts late Wednesday (8/26/2020) or early Thursday (8/27/2020).

We encourage all students in the impacted states (Arkansas, Missouri, Texas, and Louisiana) to heed your local hurricane warnings, take precaution, and make preperations. The safety and well-being of our community is our top priority. Faculty members are asked to be flexible for impacted students.

On behalf of the faculty and staff, we are thinking of our community members in the hurricane’s path and we hope that you and your families remain safe.

Below is a list of resources by state. Please access support as needed and reach out if the College can be of assistance dring this difficult time.
