Tropical Storm Isaac remains a threat to southwest Florida. Although the storm path has shifted west and remains fairly disorganized, weather conditions are still expected to deteriorate in the next few days. At this time, the college is closing preparing for this weather on Monday, August 27th.
A decision will be made during the weekend about the need to evacuate on-campus housing. If Edison State College does evacuate on-campus housing, all students who remain on campus will be required to leave LightHouse Commons until the campus is able to resume normal operations. You will not be able to remain in your room once this occurs. Those needing a place to stay will be transported to the nearest local shelter.
In the meantime, we encourage you to begin preparing for the storm. Residents who have the ability to travel home for the weekend are encouraged to do so. Please inform your Resident Assistant (RA) if you do leave for the weekend. Please let your RA know the following:
