ABILENE, Texas - Hardin-Simmons suffered a large amount of broken windows during Thursday's hailstorm, especially on the north facing side of campus. As of right now, there is only cosmetic damage to the university.
"While it's too early for estimates, said Brenda Alexander, HSU's vice president of finance. "We are not aware of any structural damage to campus buildings."
This includes 'Abilene Hall' which is almost completely made of classrooms. Friday afternoon, crews worked to board up them up before the sun went down.
The roofs of many buildings were also damaged by the falling ice.
Faculty, staff, and students worked together Thursday evening to clean the campus up after the storm passed.
The campus maintenance and police departments worked overnight to that the university could still hold its "Round-Up" for new students and families Friday morning.
As of now, Hardin-Simmons says that they will still be able to conduct regular schedules such as summer classes and campus events.
