Classes will resume at NSU Tuesday, Aug. 31

Classes and other normal operations will resume on all Northwestern State University campuses Tuesday after being closed Monday because of the threat of hazardous weather conditions from Hurricane Ida.

Northwestern and other universities, public schools, state offices and businesses across the region announced Monday closures as the huge storm approached the Louisiana coast Friday.

There were projections over the weekend of flooded roadways, power outages and other damage from the hurricane throughout South-Central Louisiana.

NSU interim president Dr. Marcus Jones said, “Northwestern students planning to return to campus from South Louisiana and other areas impacted by Hurricane Ida should observe local travel advisories and exercise extreme caution in traveling.”
