Webber International University is monitoring hurricanes Florence and Helene, tropical storm Isaac, and other weather disturbances.
The St. Andrews campus in Laurinburg, North Carolina is bracing for anticipated extreme weather from hurricane Florence. The latest update can be found at: https://www.sa.edu/news/item/443-sau-weather-alert. Classes and all athletic events except the Georgetown football game have been cancelled until Monday, September 18 when the campus is anticipated to return to business as usual status. While because of the anticipated severity of this storm students have been encouraged to move further from the anticipated path of the storm if possible (including staying with alumni who have offered to host them), security and residential life staff will remain on campus throughout the storm to care for students who elect to ride it out on campus. Dean of Student Life Rev. Dr. Verhey can be reached at 910-277-5145. The Florida campus’ emergency management team will post updates as we get them, but in the event of phone and/or power outage, the North Carolina campus will not be able to reach us either.
The Florida campus appears to be out of the path of each of these storms. We are at business as usual status. As we do each hurricane season, we remain vigilant, keep our supplies stocked, monitor the tropics, and suggest that students, employees, friends and families do likewise.
