TS Nicole Update – Evening Classes Cancelled

By Jenna Johnson | November 10, 2022

The Charleston Southern University Emergency Management Team continues to monitor the path and projected impacts of Tropical Storm Nicole. The storm briefly became a Category 1 hurricane as it made landfall in eastern Florida this morning but weakened to a tropical storm very soon after. Its path has moved more northwest, and it will gradually weaken to a tropical depression as it makes its way up through Georgia and South Carolina late this evening and into Friday morning. Tropical storm force gusts up to 40-50 mph are expected along with rain bands this afternoon and tonight. 

CSU will remain on its current operating schedule for Thursday and Friday; however, evening on-campus classes after 6 p.m. will be cancelled today (Thursday). All classes will resume normal instruction on Friday. If it is unsafe to travel at any point, please stay home. Students should communicate with their professors if they are unable to attend class in person. Classrooms, offices, and dining services will remain open, but if an employee is unable to travel due to weather conditions, they should contact their supervisor directly to discuss options. 

Important updates will be sent via campuswide email, with urgent releases also communicated via BucAlert (the campus emergency notification system), the website, and social media as necessary. 

Stay safe, Bucs!
