Penn State Dining and Food Services is planning to keep dining halls open for the duration of Hurricane Sandy.
Findlay, Pollock, Redifer, Warring and North Halls commons will remain open, Assistant Vice President for Housing, Food Services and Residence Life Stan Latta said.
A power outage would affect how the dining commons handled serving food. If the power went out in one residence hall, students would still be able to go to other dining halls, Latta said.
“We may adjust the menu. We may only be going to a two-meal service [if there’s a power outage],” Latta said.
In response to Hurricane Sandy, University Park closed its libraries as of 1:30 p.m., according to Penn State Libraries’ website.
In addition to University Park, campus libraries at Abington, Altoona, Brandywine, Berks, Great Valley, Harrisburg, Hazleton, Lehigh Valley, Schuylkill, Wilkes-Barre, Worthington Scranton and York are closed for the day as well, according to the website.
As for Tuesday, the only campus libraries closed as of press time Monday are Altoona, Berks, Harrisburg, Hazleton, Lehigh Valley and Worthington Scranton, according to the website.
