Message to Students Potentially Affected by Hurricane Matthew

We have been monitoring the news about Hurricane Matthew. Since you are from one of the states or areas in the Caribbean that is feeling the most impact from this devastating storm, we wanted to reach out with a message of support.

We hope the storm is having a minimal impact on your family and friends, but if you are being affected in some way and need assistance, please do not hesitate to let us know.
