During the past 11 years, there were a number of times when the FAU campuses were closed, classes were cancelled, and life as we know it had to change to accommodate the weather-induced changes. The Fall 2005 term was by far the most disrupted semester, with a brief closure due to Katrina early in the term and a much longer one due to Wilma later in that term. Hurricane Wilma caused a lot of damage on campus, forced many faculty members in the S&E building (myself included) to move elsewhere on campus, and required a comprehensive recovery plan.
In a few hours, FAU will be closing for the first time this hurricane season, to prepare for Tropical Storm / Hurricane Fay. Please check: www.fau.edu for updates.
