​We will be starting the process of turning on the Air Conditioning to the entire campus starting later this week.  We should have all the buildings on by next Monday.  We are having a mild spring so far with the temperatures being in the 60's and 70's for the most part and the forecast for the next 10 days to be in the same range with one day in the 80's (this Saturday).  But the buildings have been warming up and we want to be sure that "dead week" and finals week will not be affected by warming temperatures.  Please contact me if you have any questions.  Thanks.
