Tropical Storm Eta November 11, 2020 4:00pm EST

The Babson Park Campus Crisis Response Team and the senior leadership of Webber International University have been monitoring the unusual track of Tropical Storm Eta which is expected to make landfall well north of us early Thursday, November 12.

Based upon all the information available to us, we are expecting a wet and windy night Wednesday, with some occasional moderate wind gusts late night Wednesday and early morning Thursday.

While we are not expecting them, we have secured for tropical force winds (which pretty much means bringing in furniture and trash cans, taking down flags, etc.) We are operating on a normal schedule with no cancellations of classes or activities… dinner and breakfast are expected to be on time, practices are expected to run, and Thursday morning classes are expected to meet as normal. Webber’s security force is on campus 24/7/365 and resident assistants are always on campus anytime students are in residence.

We are, however, aware that some of our employees and students live some distance from us, and we simply cannot know all local weather or road conditions.  Therefore, we empathize what is always the case:  you need to be aware of your surroundings and are always the ultimate judge of whether local weather and road conditions are safe enough to traverse.  Any employee unable to make it in because of local weather conditions should, as soon as possible, contact his or her immediate supervisor; any student unable to make it in should, as soon as possible, contact the academic dean and his or her coach.

Posted date, time, by, and authority of: Wednesday, November 11, 2020 4:00pm EST by the President of the University of his own authority.
