ORIGINAL ANNOUNCEMENT: Feb. 10, 2010

Roanoke College's C. Homer Bast Center, along with all offices and the fitness center, are closed until further notice due to a weather-related maintenance issue. We regret any inconvenience, and until an assessment is completed, cannot provide a timeline regarding reopening.

Wednesday's men's basketball game against Hampden-Sydney College will be played at 7 p.m. at the Hollins University gym.

Tonight's lecture by Peter Enns also is postponed. The speaker's flight to Roanoke was canceled due to high winds and inclement weather. "Academic Inquiry and Faith: Problems and Possibilities in the Modern World" has not been rescheduled at this time. An announcement will be forthcoming when the event has been rescheduled.

To minimize inconvenience, we are temporarily relocating classes held in Bast for Thursday, February 11, to the following locations:
