THE CAGAYAN State University and the Isabela State University will implement academic breaks to give their students and faculty time to recover from the effects of Typhoon Ulysses.

The CSU Office of the President on Sunday announced its decision as most parts of the province remain submerged in flood waters.

“To allow students and faculty members to recover from the effect of the flood that destroyed many properties and livelihood, Academic Relief is extended until further notice,” it said on Facebook.

The school earlier suspended classes from November 9 to 13, 2020.

The university’s  Carig and Andrews campuses were turned into evacuation centers for families who lost their homes.

“The President extends her gratitude to the donors for their generous help and to the untiring volunteers, faculty, staff and students who facilitate the repacking and distribution of goods,” it said.

Meanwhile, the Isabela State University said it will implement an ‘academic ease’  and suspended classes from November 16 to 22.

The deadlines for all activities, examinations, and requirements scheduled on the said dates will be moved a week later.

Affected students can submit requirements after they have recovered from the effects of the typhoon, or when power and internet connection has been restored in their area.

“The University enjoins the call to keep up resilient measures to assure safety and well-being of everyone. Keep safe!” ISU said on Facebook.
