In response to the news of Tropical Storm Zeta’s expected approach in the gulf, Nicholls State University has decided to transition its campus to an online setting. 

Director of Communications Jerad David released an email to the university earlier today, stating that all classes on Wednesday and Thursday would be conducted virtually due to the threat of potentially dangerous weather conditions. 

In turn, David also announced that all campus events scheduled for Wednesday have been postponed.

In regards to Thursday’s events, David said that Bistro Ruth’s evening dinner has been canceled. A determination for the remainder of Thursday’s scheduled events will be announced early on Thursday. 

In addition, David wrote that residence halls will stay open for students and all food services will be available tomorrow, only for breakfast and lunch. David strongly encouraged these students to pick up dinner by 2 p.m. Brunch and dinner will be available on Thursday. 

David also mentioned in this email that facilities such as The Student Union, Recreation Center, Little Colonels Academy and Ellender Library will close at noon on Wednesday and will be reopened on Thursday at 10 a.m., depending on an assessment of Nicholls’ campus.
