A media release from Millsaps College has stated that the University is delaying the start of on-campus activities for the spring semester, including all athletic practices, by one week. All students, undergrad and graduate students, are included in this delay.

Residence halls will not open until 10:00am on Sunday, January 14 and after the observance of MLK day, classes will being on January 16. The academic term will begin before classes and faculty will begin distributing course material to students via email.

Cold weather in the Jackson area have made conditions unsuitable for the return of the student body according to the release.

Due to several days of below-freezing temperatures in the area, the city of Jackson is actively managing an emergency situation related to broken and damaged water lines throughout the area. This situation includes breaks in lines, loss of water pressure, and in some cases, no water at all. As of Thursday morning, January 4, the city has issued a precautionary boil-water advisory for the entire area.

Here at Millsaps, low water pressure has made toilets (particularly on upper floors) and showers largely unusable. Dining Services lacks adequate water for food preparation, and water outages are projected to continue through the next several days.

Millsaps says they will update the situation if any further delays occur.
