From NSU President Dr. Chris Maggio:

Power has been restored at all Northwestern State University campuses, including our Leesville-Fort Polk campus, and classes will resume tomorrow, Monday, Oct. 12, following the normal class schedule.

Students should plan to attend in person classes or log in to online classes as usual.

We understand that there will be some students without power and/or internet service.  Computer labs on all NSU campuses will be open and accessible. Students who are still without power or cannot participate in classes because of internet connectivity may find this resource helpful.  We urge professors/instructors to be flexible with students impacted by Hurricane Delta in assignment deadlines and to assist these students as needed.  Your support for all impacted students is very much appreciated.

The Fall ’20 semester has certainly been challenging with COVID-19, Hurricane Laura and now Hurricane Delta.  I want to commend each of you for the resilience that you have exhibited throughout this difficult semester.  Your dedication and willingness to adapt is inspiring. Thank you all!
