ORANGEBURG, S.C. (WIS) - South Carolina State University has canceled classes Friday citing a computer network outage after Orangeburg officials conducted emergency system maintenance which affected the university’s electricity.

School officials tweeted Friday morning that no classes would be held Friday due to an interruption in computer network service.

Employees that are considered non-essential were told to work from home.

Students still had access to the dining hall and COVID-19 testing.

Officials did not have a timeline for when they thought the issues would be fixed.
