Classes Resume at Nyack and NYC Campuses

Posted by Deborah.Walker on Monday November 5, 2012

 

Both Nyack Rockland and Nyack NYC campuses resumed classes today after a week long shutdown caused by Hurricane Sandy’s assault on the Tri-State New York area. 

Recounting the storm's devastation, President Michael G. Scales recalled the scene at the residential campus in Nyack, NY:  “Massive power outages required the use of generators as a backup source of power without certainty of when power will be fully restored. Building damage is still being assessed. Wood from dozens of downed trees sits in piles on the Hillside, while some still lean on buildings or are scattered across campus.”

But today at a chapel service (pictured above), students gathered in Bowman Gym to praise God in spite of the campus blight that also visited the Manhattan campus where loss of subway and bus transportation hampered travel in the City and power outages froze activity last week.

Today the campus rejoiced for being able to regain some level of normal functionality. 

Prayers continue for those still impacted by the loss of power and heat and for those braving the long lines at gas stations hoping to get fuel for their cars or generators.
