Thank You

I would like to express my sincere thanks to the campus community for the plant, cards, and many expressions of sympathy that I have received since the death of my husband. I am blessed to work with such caring and compassionate individuals.

Opening of Lot 15

Lot 15 is open beginning today! It is scheduled for use by faculty and staff from 6 am to 6 pm and anyone from 6 pm to 10:30 pm or weekends. The lot is a closed loop so if parking is not available a "K" turn-around area is located at the far end. Pavement markings reserve this area for turning and it is essential it be kept free of obstructions. The concrete stair at the tennis court end has not been completed and construction may be taking place there in the near future. Please honor all contractor safety barricades when that occurs. Thank you.
