Power outage: A campus-wide power outage is scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 26, for approximately six hours. Those hours have not yet been determined. Crews are performing routine maintenance which will improve the redundancy of the power supply to Western. Students with disabilities, or those with health care needs requiring refrigeration, should contact Disabilities Services Coordinator Cheyenne Terry, M.S., at firstname.lastname@example.org for accommodations.
IT and Residence Life will send out information via email regarding other aspects of the outage.
With power down, there will be no ventilation to buildings; therefore, the Mountaineer Field House will be closed on Sept. 26. Additionally, a special Al Fresco “Power to the People Brunch” has been planned from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. Continental breakfast, salads, quiche and sandwiches will be served on the University Center south patio since hot meal service cannot be provided.
