Freshman, Luke Brooks says the university was originally closed on Labor Day when he got a text around noon stating there would be no classes for the rest of the week due to Hurricane Dorian.

“I mean I took it serious because I knew there were people like out of state,” he said. “I have some friends from out of state, from up north, and they’ve never experienced something like this. So I could kind of be in their shoes, and realize maybe I should take it a little more serious, because that’s how they feel.”

Brooks says he packed a few bags, but did not want to believe the storm could be nearly as bad as Hurricane Florence.

Brooks also says the hurricane did no damage to his dorm.
