Zipmail Home - July 10, 2013
Two buildings closed because of no power 
Ayer and Crouse Halls are closed tonight after severe weather conditions resulted in a loss of power. It is unlikely power will be restored tonight.  The two buildings will NOT be open for normal business on Thursday morning.  

Students should check with faculty regarding alternative arrangements.  

The rest of campus is open and operating normally.  

The severe weather caused some flooding throughout many parts of campus. Physical Facilities staff are working overnight to clean it up.
