Temporary Locations of Administration Building Departments

The following email from Dean of Students Bonnie Gorman was sent to students yesterday (June 20).

As you know, the Admin Building is currently closed for safety and electrical assessments. You’ll be notified as soon as the building reopens. In the meantime, below is a list of offices that have been relocated or can be contacted by phone or email. Other resources you might find useful are also listed.

On another note, there are numerous needs in our community. If you are interested in helping out, a volunteer reception center has been set up at the Evangel Baptist Church at 1114 College Avenue. The center is coordinating assignments in the community—matching people who want to help with those who need help. I’m sure they would appreciate any time you might be able to give.

Be Safe and Take Care—Bonnie
