As Hurricane Sandy rolls in from the sea, universities and colleges in New York and other northeastern states cancel class and work to prepare their communities for the superstorm.

Hurricane Sandy's rapid approach has universities and colleges all over the Northeast scrambling to keep their students and faculty members safe. In New York state, colleges are taking various steps toward protecting their communities.

At Fordham University in the Bronx, classes are canceled through Tuesday, and on Monday afternoon students received an email saying that the health center and gym would be closed. The dining halls will have limited hours and the university's field house will become the evacuation center if power is lost or the dorms get too dangerous.
