Here is a shot of the tornado from Wednesday passing right through Western New England's campus. I am happy to report that the buildings and grounds at Western New England are in excellent condition. We were very fortunate that this storm did not disrupt our campus, or harm any of our students, faculty, and/or staff. The same cannot be said about the surrounding area, as downtown Springfield and some of the communities in the Greater Springfield area did get hit with this tornado. Many are still without electricity and several roads are blocked off due to fallen trees and power lines. We ask that you continue to keep the families of those affected in your thoughts and prayers as we attempt to rebuild.
