East Carolina Closes Early Thursday, Back To Normal Friday

The following the statement was released by ECU Information Officer, John Durham:

East Carolina University will operate as usual beginning at 7 a.m. Friday, Sept. 3. Emergency personnel should report to campus as directed by their supervisor.

Because of the predicted winds from Hurricane Earl, the university will close at 10 p.m., today, Sept. 2. The closing includes Joyner Library, Mendenhall Student Center and Student Recreation Center.

ECU Transit will end regular bus service by 11 p.m. today. Students can call ECU-BUS1 or visit www.ecu.edu/transit for specific route information. The Pirate Express shuttles to downtown Greenville are cancelled for tonight. SafeRide will end operations at 10:45 p.m.

University officials urge students to remain in their residence halls or off-campus housing from 10 p.m. to 7 a.m., when the strongest winds in the Greenville area are most likely to occur.

    ECU students are usually down town drinking before 9 pm anyway so this isn't important.
