According to Bryan Rachal, the Director of Communications and Marketing at the University of North Alabama, a portion of the third floor exterior wall of the school's Wesleyan Hall collapsed Monday around 2 p.m.
Rachal said the brick veneer covering a chimney flue separated and according to the architect, the building does not appear to have any structural damage.
The collapse was likely due to moisture that froze due to the cool temperatures Sunday night, Rachal said. He said it is safe to be in the building and it will reopen Tuesday.
