     HAMMOND – Southeastern Louisiana University’s fall commencement scheduled for 10 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 13, at the University Center will take place as scheduled.

     The university made the announcement to allay concerns and inquiries about the status of commencement in light of the snowy weather conditions that forced the institution to cancel final exams on Thursday.

     Exams for graduating seniors were completed prior to Thursday’s closure. For all other students, exams canceled on Thursday will be made up on Monday. Students should contact their instructors for information about rescheduled or missed exams.

     Weather in the Hammond area is expected to be moderate on Saturday with no anticipated road closures.
