Eastern to be open spring semester

Staff Report

President David Glassman sent out an email Monday afternoon saying the Spring semester will begin as usual.

The email was sent in response to student concerns questioning if the campus would open the following semester.

Spring Registration started on Monday.

“There is no doubt we will be able to complete the entire semester as usual,” Glassman said in the email.

The university is still waiting for the state budget to be completed to receive the state appropriations for the current academic year.

Glassman said the state and the university has been through this type of crisis in the past.

“We fully expect that our funding will come through this year and we are making contingency arrangements to operate the university until those funds are received,” Glassman said.
