Jednak said that about 50 facilities staff members, as well as contractors from three or four other companies, were on campus for cleanup.
The bubble over Alumni Stadium collapsed on Saturday morning—Tommaney said that there may have been a ripped seam, but that contractors were still working to assess the damage. He did say that no one was hurt by the bubble’s collapse—it had already been shut down at that time.
“We will be ready for the school to open [Monday], but total cleanup could last for a few more days,” Jednak said. “In terms of the students—the ones that helped were a great help, and so far everyone has been very cooperative with our staff, and we’ve been working really hard to get the place clean, so that’s appreciated by everybody.”
Tommaney seemed likewise appreciative of the University community’s response to the storm. “It seems that people heeded the warnings we sent out, via email and through ResLife,” he said. “This, unlike most winter storms, was pretty serious. The community generally did a very good job of heeding those warnings, so we thank them for that.”
