Florida A&M University is opening its Foster-Tanner Band Rehearsal Hall to students who live off campus and need a storm shelter. The university will begin accommodating them at the facility beginning today, Saturday, September 9 at 2:00 p.m.
The off-campus students must bring their Rattler IDs and are being asked to bring their own blankets and pillows due to the fact that FAMU has a limited number of cots. Off-campus students are permitted to bring their children, however they will be responsible for their supervision.
FAMU will accommodate the dining needs of as many students as it can.
The university will also use Gaither Gymnasium to house possibly hundreds of U.S. Army soldiers who have been assigned to assist Florida in recovering from Irma.
