Update: The University of Louisiana at Lafayette has announced it will remain closed on Wednesday. Spokesperson Aaron Martin says classes and operations will resume on Thursday.

Also, SLCC has announced it will stay closed on Wednesday, as well as all Lafayette Public Library System branches and offices.


Classes will go on Wednesday at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette.

Spokesperson Aaron Martin says classes and operations will resume at 10:00 a.m. He says if there are students who cannot make it in for classes, they should contact the Dean of Students Office at deanofstudents@louisiana.edu or (337) 482-6272 to discuss their circumstances. For faculty members who can't make it in, they should contact their immediate supervisor.

Martin says officials will continue to check up on the weather conditions, however. And if this does call for further closures, he says a notification will be sent through the ENS and official University messages will be updated. He advises students and faculty to monitor the University's hotline at 482-2222 for further updates, as well as official University social media and the University website.

The University administration will rework the spring semester schedule to address academic needs of students. Martin says announcements about class make-up sessions will be made by next week.
