Important Items / Changes to Note
As we are fully underway with the demo and grading activity adjacent to Gambrell Hall, please take note of the temporary sidewalks that will lead you safely around the construction zone.
Now that the Fall Semester has begun, we ask everyone to pay special attention to their surroundings. There are three, large construction projects taking place in close proximity to the campus and healthcare facilities. Measures are in place to lead you safely around these construction areas and we ask that you observe signage and barriers that are in place for your protection.
