NGU Reacts to Possible Coastal Evacuation
Tigerville SC (September 6, 2017) With the threat of Hurricane Irma's approach to the South Carolina coastline, there is a possibility that the state of South Carolina may ask residents to evacuate the coastal areas.
North Greenville University has informed students that have family members living in an area that will be under an evacuation order (coastal SC, GA or Fla.), that the university will be providing shelter on campus at no cost on a first-come, first-serve basis, and as long as space is available.
The Office of Student Life has asked students or a member of the student's family to contact their office as early as Thursday morning, September 7. Families are asked to contact the Office of Student Life at (864)977-7121 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
"It is important that we know how many families to expect so we can properly prepare," said assistant vice president of student life Billy Watson.
Shelter may be in open resident hall rooms or in other spaces on campus. The volume of requests for shelter will determine which spaces on campus will be used.
"Families should bring blankets, sheets, sleeping bags, pillows, etc. with them. And any medications that they may need," said Watson.
The Office of Student Life is working with Aramark, the school's dining service, on the details for food availability and possible meal cost.
NGU hopes that providing this opportunity will help the North Greenville Family during a very stressful emergency situation.
"Please know that we are praying for all families and friends that will be affected by this storm," said Watson.
