PSU Students Weather Tropical Storm Irene

August 29th, 2011 by Adam

The more than 380 students who remained on the PSU campus during Tropical Storm Irene stayed safe and dry throughout the event.

Students who had arrived early were primarily student orientation leaders, residence hall staff and athletes. When the storm hit Sunday, PSU was prepared. All PSU buildings were staffed and dining services were in operation during the weekend. Students participating in off campus activities (such as an outdoor recreation group hiking in the White Mountains) were returned safely before Saturday night. Several dozen of the students remaining on campus volunteered to staff PSU’s emergency evacuation shelter, which opened Sunday and was used by more than a dozen displaced area residents.

“Cooperation among Plymouth State and surrounding communities was extraordinary during the crisis,” said PSU President Sara Jayne Steen.

Details on Move In activities will be announced later today (August 29).
