Some good news to share: Power has been restored to all buildings across campus.

This includes Ayer and Crouse halls, where electrical equipment had been damaged by rainwater, and several North Quad residence halls and Robertson Dining Hall, where an unmarked electrical line was inadvertently cut by a construction crew.
