While it may be hard to believe, these UL Tropical System Campus Procedures are, in fact, fake.

I began college at then - USL back in 1994 and was a member of the first graduating class of UL in 1999 (I switched schools, hence 5 instead of 4 years) and have lost count of how many times I slogged through ABOVE ANKLE - DEEP water during a major rain event. That includes tropical systems, too. While there are probably lots of factors involved in cancelling classes at a university, they don't really make anything easier for the students have to swim to class.

Current UL students are experiencing the same sense of frustration with UL's cancellation policies and sharing that frustration on social media. A listener sent me a copy of a set of 'campus procedures concerning tropical systems' and while hilarious, it's not real.

UL's site does not have any specifics as to what influences the decision to cancel classes in the event of severe weather.
