While the fallen tree has been cleared from the campus entrance off Poinsett Highway, the entrance remains closed because of downed power lines that have closed sections of Poinsett Highway. People coming to campus should use the Timmons Arena or Alley Gym gates until further notice.

The Human Resources office is closed today because of the loss of power at its off-campus office.
