Dear St. Andrews University community,
It is hard to believe, given what we have recently endured, that another hurricane is bearing down on the Florida panhandle and will bring more rain to eastern North Carolina. Rest assured, our maintenance staff is preparing for the storm and the administration is closely following the progress of Hurricane Michael.
At this point we are convinced that, while we are likely to experience significant rain and wind Thursday night, there is no imminent danger to our facilities, students, faculty, or staff. We do not intend to cancel classes, evacuate campus, or make any changes to our normal schedule.
We will, however, continue to monitor the progress of the storm and inform every one of any changes in our response to Hurricane Michael. As a reminder, please make sure you are signed into our Nixel alert system on your cell phone, which will be useful in the event we lose power. Our highest priority remains, as always, the safety and well-being of our students, faculty, and staff.
Paul Baldasare, President
