Florida State University steels itself for Hurricane Michael

As Florida State University closed its Tallahassee and Panama City campuses in preparation for Hurricane Michael, the school’s foodservice made strides to ensure that students staying on campus would remain fed as the storm approaches.

Florida State was officially closed on Tuesday, Oct. 9, including all campus eateries except for The Suwannee Room, which remained open until 8 p.m. that day, according to the university’s website. Employees of Seminole Dining were slated to bring box meals to residence halls to ensure students had food on hand for Oct. 10-11. All campus eateries will remain closed during the course of the storm, the site noted.

Hurricane Michael is expected to hit land on Oct. 10, according to CBS12.com.

Campus will stay closed through Oct. 12, and classes are expected to resume on Oct. 15.
