Howard University begins classes after cold snap damages buildings

WASHINGTON — Spring semester classes will finally begin for Howard University students Tuesday.

The semester begins after the university had to deal with pipe and boiler issues during the last cold snap that caused damage to several buildings.

Some of those pipes ruptured, leading to flooding and heating issues.

Some buildings on campus will remain closed for repairs. Officials have not said how long repairs will take or how much they’ll cost.
