From: College Network

Over the coming holiday weekend, we will be moving our core infrastructure to a data center in Los Angeles that ranks as one of the most prominent technology facilities in the Western U.S. As a result of this move, we will see a significant expansion of our core infrastructure environment and our network connectivity. This move will enable us to better serve our partner, the St. John's University athletic department, and its constituents.

The effort will begin at approximately 3:01 a.m. E.T. Friday morning. We expect the move to be completed within 24-36 hours - however, it may carry into Sunday, July 4. Throughout the move, will remain visible to the world, but there will be a few components of the site that will be unavailable or will not function. Access to core content such as headlines, schedules, bios, rosters and photos will not be interrupted.

Additionally, St. John's Athletics personnel will be unable to post new content to during this move. However, SJU has arranged for real estate on as a means for posting any breaking news that may develop during this down time. There may not be any news, but if there is, you can access it via Twitter by clicking here.

We thank you in advance for your understanding and patience, and wish everyone a fun and safe holiday weekend.
