Campus Update

January 11, 2011

Dear Campus Community:

I hope that you and your families are safe and warm. Morehouse has been closed for regular business hours since Monday due to the inclement weather. We also will be closed on Wednesday. Registration has been postponed until next Tuesday, January 18. The first day of class has been delayed until next Wednesday, January 19. You will continue to receive updates on college business hours on your phones and email through the campus Emergency Response System, on the Morehouse web site, and through local news outlets (television, radio and AJC.com).

Conditions on campus are generally the same as the rest of the city of Atlanta, but we are taking every precaution to ensure that students are safe, warm and receiving meals and other basic services as usual. Chivers Dining Hall is open and providing full service. Residential directors are on campus and all dormitories and buildings have heat, with no major problems reported. Physical Plant and grounds personnel are on campus de-icing pathways and sidewalks between key facilities, including all dormitories and the dining hall. Temporary contract services are providing additional support to our staff with the de-icing efforts on campus.

As an extra measure of precaution, the College is providing on-campus housing to our critical personnel to alleviate the need to travel in hazardous conditions. Campus Police are on duty and responding to calls from parents, students and others in the campus community regarding conditions on campus.

During this period, if you still have questions or concerns, please call Campus Police at 404-215-2666.

Sincerely,

Weldon Jackson,
Provost and Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs
