Veteran Services is now accepting used text books. These books will be used by military-connected students in the future. It is a great way to help fellow students who may not have the funds to buy books in the future. All books are welcome; however, we are in need of books for most general studies courses.

This is an update from Jax State. Please note the list of items that students are needing to return to campus. Thanks.

Things are progressing around campus at lightening speed to prepare for our students return. It is incredible how much debris has been removed in the last two days.

I just got word on some items that are needed in preparation for our students return so I wanted to share with you:

lightweight backpacks
inexpensive jump/flash drives
inflatable air mattresses
granola bars or similar products
sleeping bags
coffee makers
small luggage or duffle bags
large plastic totes/containers

These items can be sent or taken to Jacksonville First United Methodist Church at 109 Gayle Ave SW, Jacksonville, AL 36265.

And if you know of any students needing clothing or shoes, we have several donation spots around town that I can put them in touch with (our students have set up donation spots in their garages, apartments, etc) so please let me know and I can pass along some addresses for you.

We will continue to provide free meals at Jack Hopper Dining Hall to all those assisting our campus community with the clean up efforts through April 4, 2018.

DAILY UPDATE FROM DR. KING

Students,

As some of you probably noticed, I was up early this morning. Too early. I was responding to emails at 2 a.m. and some of you replied at 3 a.m. What could you all possibly be doing at 3 a.m.? More than likely, you were doing the same thing I was doing - thinking about the many things we need to do to recover. Well, staying up too late and not sleeping is not ideal. First and foremost, all of us need to stay healthy and take care of our needs. Thus, I want to remind you to eat healthy, get sleep and decompress as best you can. In addition, drink lots of water.

It is never too early to start talking about mental health and the recovery process. As I stated yesterday, we have counselors and social workers at the Disaster Recovery Center located at the Train Depot in Jacksonville, and we will provide the same on campus when students return. Whether you are in Jacksonville or not, this was a traumatic event and it will cause an impact of some sort in your life. Be cognizant of it and do not be afraid to seek assistance. As I always ask students, if you had a problem with your heart wouldn't you go to the doctor for medical intervention? Your brain is no different. It is an organ and sometimes it reacts to the circumstances encountered in ways that interfere with daily living. If this is happening to you now, you know it is time to speak to a professional. They are trained to guide you through these tough times.

Financial Aid and Scholarships

I know you are busy considering what academic option is best for you in each course in consultation with your advisor and professors. It is very important that you do not forget to contact Financial Aid about the potential impact of your choices. The Financial Aid office is monitoring phone lines and emails and can be reached at 256-782-5006 or [email protected]. We will work diligently and as quickly as possible to get you the answers you need.

The Scholarship Office is back to work and answering questions as they arise. They are also scurrying to finish application reviews for 2018-19. Please call 256-782-8040 or email [email protected] for assistance.

Books

I have received many questions about books, mainly “what should students do if they don't have books because of the storm?” The JSU Bookstore announced today that most of the major publishers would be issuing eText access to cover materials lost to get students through the remainder of the semester. Both McGraw-Hill and Cengage Learning have confirmed that this process will be handled through Blackboard and your instructors. We do expect most of the other larger publishers to handle it in the same format. We encourage all students to email their instructors for information about obtaining textbook material. If a student has a less-used book from a smaller publisher, please contact the Bookstore. They will be working with the students on a case-by-case basis, but they will get you a book! Book rental students, please feel free to email the Bookstore at [email protected].

Two Student Affairs Departments Temporarily Relocating

Due to storm damage, the International House and Programs staff will relocate to Veteran Services (located in Daugette Hall basement) later this week and Career Services is moving to the historic Kitty Stone facility behind First United Methodist Church of Jacksonville. These moves are temporary, however, no timetable has been set for their return to pre-storm locations.

Housing

University Housing and Operations staff have been busy reaching out to off-campus students to assist with relocation options at JSU or Ft. McClellan. If you are an off-campus resident and need somewhere to live for the remainder of the term, please see the JSU Strong website and complete an application for housing. It is relatively simple.

In addition, I received a call today from the manager at The Reserve. He indicated that he knows residents are frustrated and, if he could, he would allow students to return. He informed me that a structural engineer is inspecting buildings today and he should have an answer for returning students within 48 hours.

Need Legal Advice?

There is now an attorney at the Disaster Recovery Center at the Train Depot in Jacksonville, and we will have additional legal resources on campus April 6-7 at the One Stop Shop located in the TMB. We are meeting Thursday to set times for One Stop Shop hours of operation.

Thanks again for your continued patience, although you are probably tired of reading that sentiment. Recovery is a long process with peaks and valleys. We have made progress and the SGA has even rescheduled Cockystock for April 18. It will be a time to connect and enjoy each other and listen to great music. I look forward to seeing you there. Until Wednesday, #jsustrong, #gamecockstrong.

Kind regards,
Tim

MAJOR ANNOUNCEMENT: 🚨

Dear Students,

As many of you know, the recovery process from a natural disaster like our recent tornado is stressful and all of us experience a multitude of emotions throughout the day. Make sure you are taking care of yourself as best you can. If you need assistance, go by the Disaster Recovery Center at the Train Depot in Jacksonville. We have two counselors at that location today and for the remainder of the week or as long as it is operational. The DRC can point you to how to get many other forms of help (e.g., food, clothing, housing) as well.

I am receiving an abundance of emails and phone calls, and I am doing my best to respond to each message. If I have not replied to you, please bear with me. I will get back to you as soon as I can or will have one of my team reach out to you. The most critical questions I receive are about 1) academic options, 2) when students can return to campus, and 3) commencement.

These issues are what your JSU Administration has been working on all day; so let me share our plans with you for each issue.

The three academic options I mentioned to you last week are still the options in effect:

1) Take the current grade earned as the final grade for all classes or for select classes

2) Take an incomplete in all or select classes and finish the class(es) through the applicable incomplete procedure

3) Complete the semester for all or select classes and complete course requirements

Recall that I also shared this very important fact: "Each student’s situation is different; therefore, it is imperative that students make these decisions wisely and with input from faculty and academic advisers who are very knowledgeable about degree and accreditation requirements." Make sure you speak with your professors and your academic advisors first before making these decisions! In addition, contact Financial Aid, especially if you choose an incomplete, to ascertain if there are any ramifications of that selection for future aid.

Given a review of our current recovery progress and the revised estimates of time to make the affected facilities safe and usable, the new start date for classes will be April 9th.

Please allow me to explain.

On Thursday April 5th, students who reside on campus will be allowed to return. For those who require a new housing assignment, university housing officials will be in touch with you about when you can collect your belongings and they will provide you with assistance moving to another location on campus.

If you reside off-campus and are looking for housing, please fill out a request form online via the JSU Strong website. We are finalizing details for an option at Ft. McClellan and I plan to communicate this to you tomorrow.

On Friday and Saturday, April 6th and 7th, Academic Affairs and Student Affairs will set up a one-stop shop in the TMB Auditorium to provide you with assistance regarding planning for spring 2018 course completion, advising and registration for summer and fall 2018, commencement for spring 2018, counseling, housing, financial aid, scholarships, disaster response needs and other services. I will announce the details and times for the one-stop shop in the coming days.

To assist students and faculty with the recovery process, we will change finals week into the last week of classes to give all an opportunity to complete course requirements. This last week of classes will run from April 23rd to April 30th. For students who have questions about their situation as it relates to graduation, please contact your advisor and/or check with the Registrar’s Office to ensure you have met all graduation requirements. Commencement will be held in the JSU Football Stadium on Friday May 4th. If there is a threat of rain or severe weather, we will announce a delay until either Saturday or Sunday May 5th or 6th. If you have questions about the EPP or other degree obligations, please consult your advisor or a representative from your degree program.

My team is developing a Help Center that will be available to you when campus reopens for your return. We will also have a Donation Center to assist you with things you may have lost in the storm. Lastly, I have heard from many students living off campus who are encountering issues with processing insurance claims, accessing their place of residence or answering general legal questions. If you are a student having problems related to insurance, please contact the Alabama Department of Insurance at 800.433.3966. If you are a student having issues related to accessing your place of residence or property management issues, please contact Legal Services at 866.456.4995. The Volunteer Lawyer Program at 888.857.8571 may address other legal issues.

While we have made substantial progress in a short period of time, there is still a significant amount of work for us to do. We appreciate your continued patience. As always, feel free to reach out to us. Until Tuesday, #jsustrong #gamecockstrong #fighton
