University experiences power outage


On October 21 between 8:30 a.m. and 9 a.m. Colorado State University-Pueblo experienced a power outage lasting about two hours.

It is unclear at this time what caused the power outage through Black Hills Energy, but the problem was fixed and power was restored.

A text message was sent out by CSU-Pueblo’s alert messaging system at 9:45 a.m. informing students that the power outage had been reported. At 9:55 a.m. CSU-Pueblo sent another message cancelling all 10 a.m. classes.

When the power had been restored CSU-Pueblo sent one more message at 10:33 a.m. informing students that all classes and activities would continue as planned.

There have been no further issues with the electricity on campus and more information on this story will be coming soon.
