Prepare for Irene!

As most of us here at CCU have learned, Hurricane Irene is expected to hit the East Coast with heavy winds and rain from here in South Carolina all the way up to Rhode Island beginning this weekend. Please keep checking your email, CCU Alert texts, and other notifications to stay informed on possible emergency evacuation procedures. You can also check out for emergency information specific to Horry County. CCU also has a list for students on the Do's, Dont's and Must Haves of hurricane preparation. Be safe, and have a great weekend!

Welcome Back and Construction Update

Kimbel Library and the TEAL Center would like to wish a warm welcome to all new and returning students and faculty. As you may have noticed, the Bryan Information Commons is beginning to take shape. Since classes let out in May, the builders have laid the foundation, and made great progress toward building the framework for what will be a 18,000 square foot, state-of-the-art center for student learning and engagement. Of course, with any kind of progress, comes a little extra noise. If you happen to be working in that library during the day, and are bothered by the noise, we have disposable earplugs available near the main entrance. Have a fun and productive fall and stay tuned for more news from Kimbel Library.
