            HAMMOND -- Southeastern Louisiana University will make up lost class time due to Hurricane Gustav by eliminating a planned two-day fall break in October and modifying class assignment schedules.
            The original academic calendar called for a fall break Oct. 2-3.
            The university had to cancel classes this week due to Gustav. Classes are now scheduled to resume at the Hammond campus and all off-site locations beginning Monday, Sept. 8.
            "We realize that many of our students and faculty were looking forward to a fall break this year, but this plan is the most logical and least problematic solution for making up these canceled class days," said Interim President John L. Crain.
