Christopher Newport University will participate in Virginia’s annual statewide tornado drill tomorrow, Tuesday, March 20, 2018, at 9:45 a.m. The statewide tornado drill is a yearly opportunity to prepare our community for tornado emergencies and to test emergency notification systems, including the audible sirens.

Residents should not be alarmed. This is only a drill.

If widespread severe weather threatens the Commonwealth tomorrow, the drill will be rescheduled for Wednesday, March 21, at 9:45 a.m.

Christopher Newport is a Certified Crime Prevention Campus, a designation by the Virginia Department of Criminal Justice Services for implementing campus safety strategies as a part of a comprehensive community effort to keep our students safe and secure.
