Campus travel message from Chief Shortt

Mon, 02/23/2015 - 13:03


To the campus community,

Our crews are working hard to remove the snow and ice from roads, sidewalks and parking lots on campus. We are asking people to only come to campus if absolutely necessary during this time so our crews can continue the snow removal work without having vehicles in the way. For those who must come to campus, please park at the David J. Prior Convocation Center. We know this is inconvenient, but it will speed up the snow removal process.
