Iowa Students: Flooding a Concern?
« on: June 15, 2008, 03:29:30 PM »
Is the flooding affecting the law school at all?

This article makes it sound like the campus may be in for some real trouble: http://www.desmoinesregister.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20080614/NEWS/806140359

According to http://uiflood.blogspot.com/ (the University's temporary site for flood information), the Boyd Law Building is not on the list of flooded or in danger of flooding buildings. It is, however, closed at this time with classes cancelled at least through June 22nd. The LSAT that was scheduled for today was also cancelled.

I'm not a U of I student, but I live in Iowa. Hopefully the law school will be safe from the record flooding.

It's not a problem.  Iowa City people know that the Law School is perched on a very tall hill which overlooks the river.  The water would need to rise at least 40 feet in order to reach it.

True... water entering the actual law school building is the only problem I could foresee.
