Local News

BATON ROUGE, La (BRPROUD) – The dates that would be used for the university’s fall break will now be used as make-up days since Southern University closed for five days due to Hurricane Ida.

Fall Break was scheduled for Monday, Oct. 4 through Tuesday, Oct. 5. Monday and Tuesday are scheduled now as make-up days.

“Faculty can choose either of these days as make-up days as well as Oct. 9, Oct. 16, Oct. 30 and Nov. 6,” an official press release said.

Instruction will be face-to-face on the scheduled make-up days but Southern encourages alternate instructional strategies such as holding class through Microsoft Teams or recording lectures.

The Southern University Office of Academic Affairs announced the make-up days to students on Thursday.
