Icy & Blocked Walkways

In recent days it has become necessary for the college to cordon off or barricade areas from foot traffic due to very dangerous icy conditions. These areas pose a very high potential for walkers to slip and fall and potentially incur some serious injuries. BE ADVISED that any area blocked by caution tape, orange cones, or other barrier are areas designated to be off limits to pedestrian traffic.

We have observed numerous student and staff members stepping over and under the barricades not hesitating to disregard the caution the college has placed. Several of those who disregarded the barrier slipped and fell hard on the ice. Persons being caught crossing these barriers risk not only serious injury, but student and employee conduct measures. Please obey the warnings and barricades that are placed for your safety, so serious injuries can be avoided.

Thank you,

Campus Police and Facilities Management Services
