Hurricane Irma: Morning Update (September 7, 2017)

By | September 7, 2017

Dear Campus Community,

The College of Charleston continues to closely monitor the development and track of Hurricane Irma. Models from early this morning continue to show a potential impact to South Carolina early next week.

At this time, the College remains on its normal operating schedule.

As always, the College’s top priority is to keep its students, faculty and staff safe.

For Faculty and Staff
Please review your hurricane preparedness plans this morning for the possibility of securing your office/work space.

For Students
Please review the Student Emergency Preparedness page at It’s imperative that students complete an emergency evacuation plan form in MyCharleston. The link can be found on the academic services tab; then go to the Banner Self Service section; click on the student link and once all the options open up, there is a link to the Emergency Evacuation Plan. NOTE: the College will provide all students an evacuation option if they do not wish to travel to a safe place on their own. If you haven’t already, please discuss your possible evacuation plans with family and friends.

College officials continue to work closely with city, county and state emergency preparedness teams to track Hurricane Irma. The College will continue to update you as developments occur later this morning.
