WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) - Classes and activities at a North Carolina college have been canceled after a power outage.

The Winston-Salem Journal reports the outage at Winston-Salem State University on Monday led officials to cancel a tour scheduled for UNC system president Margaret Spellings.

In addition to the tour, a memorial service set for Monday for a Winston-Salem State football player who was shot to death at a party at Wake Forest University was postponed. No new date has been announced.

Although power, which was lost late Sunday, was restored to the campus around 2 p.m. Monday, the cancellations remained in effect.

A statement from the school said work crews determined that the outage was caused by aging electrical infrastructure between Duke Energy’s high voltage feed and the university’s distribution system.
