Isaac Leads Colleges to Close; Political Scientists Call Off Pre-Conference Activities

August 27, 2012

Several Florida colleges and universities announced over the weekend that they would be closed today in light of the arrival of Tropical Storm Isaac. Among the institutions making such announcements: Florida International University, Florida Keys Community College, Miami Dade College, Ringling College of Art and Design, St. Thomas University and the University of Miami.

The storm, expected to reach hurricane force, is headed to the Gulf of Mexico and areas not that far from New Orleans, and more colleges are expected to announce temporary closures today. The American Political Science Association holds its annual meeting this week in New Orleans. On Sunday, the association announced that pre-conference activities on Wednesday have been canceled and that the rest of the meeting should start on time on Thursday.
