The St. Andrews campus is currently closed. We have received the following update from campus officials.
Because we are currently without power and all of Laurinburg is without water, ALL students who had not already returned home have been relocated to homes with water, power, and internet.
While the equestrian center sustained some wind and rain damage, all of our horses are safe, being fed regularly, and in good health.
Campus officials are meeting with our insurance company and disaster recovery contractors. The city is making significant progress in restoring water city-wide, including at St. Andrews. The lake overflow is rapidly receding and damage assessment is underway with the help of a disaster recovery company.
The physical plant and security staff on the main campus and the equestrian staff at the center worked tirelessly through the storm and did a great job of mitigating some of our damages. The student life staff and Pioneer food service worked closely with students and made sure they were safe, dry and had plenty of food throughout the storm as well.
A special thanks goes out to those St. Andrews alumni and staff who are helping to house students who were unable to return to their homes during the storm. Several members of the faculty and the administrative staff also contributed a great deal of time, energy and support over the last several days helping to mitigate damages, keeping essential services operating as long as we had power, and cleaning up wherever possible.
At this time, classes remain cancelled and offices are closed until power is restored and a full damage assessment can be completed. The campus is currently closed to all but authorized emergency recovery personnel. As stated earlier, students and staff will be given at least 48-hour notice before classes are set to resume. Please continue to check the St. Andrews website for further updates.
