TALLAHASSEE, Fla.- The Pensacola campus of the Florida State University College of Medicine reopened this morning after power was restored to the campus building at 8880 University Parkway.

The campus had been closed due to Hurricane Ivan since Tuesday.

All students and staff members, including those who evacuated, have been located and are safe, and the campus building is in good condition. However, many students, faculty and staff suffered damage to their homes and property and remain without power. Also, because of damage to the local infrastructure, including many medical facilities, some students may not be able to resume their clinical rotations until Monday, Sept. 27.

College of Medicine faculty and staff will make arrangements with each student assigned to the Pensacola campus to make up any missed classes or clinical rotations.
