Power has been fully restored on campus. The dining commons continues to be open, and the McPherson Academic and Athletic Complex has reopened. The Library will open tomorrow as scheduled. Tonight’s performance of All My Sons will continue as scheduled, as will the Raider Programming Board’s Coffeehouse. It will still take some time to restore our campus technology systems, including wi-fi, email, campus phones, iRaider, D2L, Self-Service, and others. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we worked with Ohio Edison to remedy this issue.

We have been informed that Ohio Edison needs to shut down power to campus for approximately three hours in order to remedy weather-related power issues in Alliance. Effective immediately, all classes for the remainder of the day are canceled and offices are closed. Non-essential faculty and staff are permitted to leave for the day. The dining commons will remain operational with a limited menu. The University will be taking systems off line, including wi-fi, email, D2L, Self-Service, iRaider, and others until power is restored and stable. We will send additional details when they are available.

As a result of last night’s power outage, we are experiencing multiple technology-related issues on campus. Currently, most of our campus systems are down, including wi-fi, email, the phone system, iRaider, D2L, and Self-Service, among others. It will take us time to get all of these systems back on line, but we are working diligently to remedy the issues. We will be certain to provide updates to the campus community as major systems are restored.

Due to inclement weather conditions, there have been some power outages around Alliance, including temporary power loss on campus. Currently, power has been restored on campus, but there is a live power line down on West Simpson Street near McMaster Hall. We are working with Ohio Edison to correct this issue. In the meantime, please avoid the area. We will provide updates as they become available.
