Tree lands on residence hall, no one injured

Due to significant rainfall, a pine tree fell today onto the roof of Student Apartments Building B on Allen Easley Drive.  No one was injured in the incident.

Tree branches damaged a small section of the building’s roof and one bedroom’s ceiling.  Residence Life and Housing staff are moving the two residents of the affected room to another room.  At this time, it appears no other rooms were impacted.

Facilities and Campus Services staff are inspecting the area around the building as a safety precaution.  Inspections will determine if damage is more extensive than it appears.

The building remains open for students.

Work is expected to be performed on power lines near the building.  Potentially, power will be out at that building and, perhaps, at others nearby when work is underway.  The University will announce by email any power outage.

If Your Student Has a Problem

One of the most important ways parents and families can help their students in college is by encouraging them to solve their own problems. Please bookmark or print out this Stop, Drop, and Roll flyer so you have it when your student contacts you with a problem.  Also, the flyer lists contact information for urgent and serious concerns where family intervention might be appropriate.
