​Please be reminded that summer parking enforcement will be suspended in many of the lots across campus as has become common practice. This is done to be more welcoming to our many visitors during the summer months. Please respect them and our goal. We ask that Faculty and Staff continue to park in the areas they are accustomed to using during Fall and Spring semesters.

Have a GREAT summer!
