FALL 2010                                                              September 1, 2010
 
We strongly suggest that students arrive on campus at least one hour in advance of their class start time, especially during the first few days and weeks of the new semester.  We also encourage everyone, once parked, to leave their vehicles in the same parking location throughout the day.
