St. Gregoryâ€™s University students, faculty and staff participated Tuesday, Feb. 7, 2012, in the Great Central U.S. ShakeOut, which is a multiâ€state earthquake drill. Many classes and administrative offices practiced the recommend actions during an earthquake â€“ drop, cover, and hold on. More than 2 million people across nine states in the central U.S. signed up to participate via the organizationâ€™s website. Benedictine Hall, the main academic and administrative building at SGU, was badly damaged as a result of the 5.6 magnitude quake that struck Oklahoma in November.
