Classes Canceled and Offices Closed All Day April 7

Classes have been canceled and offices will be closed for the entire day, April 7, due to a campus-wide power outage at Southeast Missouri State University. Electrical repairs are underway, and power is expected to be restored this afternoon.

Fire alarms will not function while power is out. Therefore, faculty and staff should not access buildings and their offices till power is restored.

Shuttles will continue to operate, with the W.I.N.G.S. bus beginning its schedule at noon today and running through Sunday.

Both lunch and dinner today will be served at Towers Cafe and St. Vincent’s Commons at the River Campus.

Computer labs in Dempster Hall, Towers and the River Campus are open today.

The Student Recreation Center is open, although the Student Aquatic Center will remain closed today. Also closed today are the Campus Health Clinic, Kent Library and Southeast Bookstore.

“Spring Into Dance” and other River Campus events tonight and this weekend as well as Saturday’s Walk for Women will continue as planned.

Today’s power outage will not affect off-campus University events scheduled today. At this time, it is anticipated that University events this weekend will continue as planned.

SUBMISSION INFORMATION: The Southeast Newswire is brought to you as a service from the University's News Bureau. The Newswire is distributed on Tuesdays and Fridays for the faculty and staff of Southeast Missouri State University. Individuals who would like to have announcements considered for inclusion in the Newswire should submit entries to http://news.semo.edu/newswire-submission-form/ by noon on Monday for Tuesday's Newswire and by noon on Thursday for Friday's Newswire. Submissions after these deadlines will be postponed until the next scheduled Newswire.  Submissions should be kept to less than 125 words. Most items will only be published once, making the content fresh and the length manageable. Because items will not regularly be repeated, posts in previous editions can be accessed from an archive available at the bottom of the Newswire.
