In September 2018, Hurricane Florence tore its way through the East coast of the states. The University of North Carolina Wilmington (UNCW) was hit hard by Florence and suffered major damages because of the storm. Student and faculty were forced evacuate the campus, and eventually returning four weeks later. UNCW’s classes have been cut from 500 to 200 hours, forcing the professors to rewrite their classes syllabus. The damages made by the storm caused a lot of the students to loose housing on and around campus, having to live in  hotels or cots in the gym. Student Hannah Bonet said “Florence destroyed lots of rooftops for the buildings, Dobo hall is still not usable, the second floor of Leutz hall is being redone, and all the university apartments are being torn down due to being unsafe for living.”

Many of the students attending the university are being displaced from their dorm on campus, either having a cot in the gym, the university arranged for the students to stay at motels about thirty minutes away. Student Aleigh Hockaday said “For [weeks] students that were displaced and lost their housing on and off campus. For a week, students either lived in hotels, on the cots in the gym or with friends. After that week, some students on campus had to find new housing either somewhere else on campus or off campus.”
