Update: Students/Families Encouraged To Use Discretion

The safety of our students and their families is of paramount importance to us. Even though Selinsgrove is not in Hurricane Irene's anticipated path and is not currently under a hurricane watch or warning, we recognize that some students will be traveling from areas expected to be significantly impacted by the storm. We encourage you to follow the emergency management procedures and guidance from your respective areas, taking all necessary precautions.

Those unable to make it to campus for the start of classes on Monday, Aug. 29, should contact the Vice President for Student Life/Dean of Students at 570-372-4135.

Selinsgrove Should Escape Serious Impact of Irene, But Saturday Move-in an Option

Based on weather reports and conversations with Snyder County Emergency Management, the Selinsgrove area is expected to escape serious effects of Hurricane Irene. The university will continue to monitor the situation and provide updates as needed.

Classes will resume on Monday, Aug. 29, as scheduled. Those students from areas likely to feel a significant impact from the hurricane may return to campus on Saturday, rather than waiting until the regularly scheduled move-in on Sunday. Upperclass students living on campus who choose to arrive Saturday are encouraged to do so between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. when the Student Life Office in the Degenstein Campus Center will be open for key pickup. Those arriving on campus after 5 p.m. should go directly to the Office of Public Safety in the Degenstein Campus Center.

The cafeteria will be open for those with meal plans.

On Sunday, on-campus residents will be able to pick up their keys between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. in the Shearer Dining Rooms in the Degenstein Campus Center.
