Reports from campus are encouraging. There is extensive tree damage, and a number of buildings lost some shingles but there is no structural damage.

Campus will open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday (8/31) through Friday (9/3) for campus residents to come and check their properties. No one will be allowed to stay overnight on campus.

Dr. Dew said campus residents will have to be displaced from campus for at least a week or two, but up to 3 weeks – until power is restored. Students who need assistance with a place to stay should contact the Dean of Students Office (dos@nobts.edu). Faculty members should contact their dean or associate dean for help with a place to stay. Staff members should contact their supervisor for temporary housing information.
