Lafayette,LA -  Acadiana schools went virtual in anticipation of flooding from Nicholas... University of Louisiana at Lafayette students prepared to walk through the rain to get to in-person classes.

"There was the possibility of it being a lot worse.", says Shawn, an undergrad at the university.

U-L student Victoria Whitney says she is stunned that the university didn't cancel school following the warning of flash flooding. "How often it floods around here and how bad it gets its kind of outstanding that we're her."

In the future, Whitney believes U-L should try sending out quicker emails would help," We got emails at like ten o'clock last night, and most people don't check their emails about that time."

Freshmen Michaya Nathaniels says he applauds U-L on how they go about making sure students can maneuver when there's bad weather. "They did take precautions during Ida so that if people did leave, you would tell them so that they could have the right amount of food for people that couldn't leave, and they also put most of the classes online or just canceled them.

several students are happy that teachers understand that they cannot make it to campus when there's bad weather.

" They'll be like, okay let's go on zoom today or they'll be no class. Overall teachers are understanding."

"Some teachers who did in-person actually went high-flex for a little bit just so that some of their students who couldn't actually make it."

U-L announced that all classes after 3p.m were cancelled and students unable to attend class tomorrow should contact their instructors directly. We also spoke to ul who says the university works to strike a balance between ensuring the health and safety of students, faculty and staff members and protecting its academic mission. They stated that they only rely on the latest and best information available from the national weather service and other sources.
