– A Day of Caring
The 10th annual United
Way Day of Caring is an upcoming opportunity for faculty and staff to
get "hands on" involvement with our community. Click to access the
details and an online registration form.
Parking: Lots of improvement for fall
thousands of students, faculty, and staff arriving on the campus,
Monday, Aug. 25, there will be a few new parking spaces to ease the
load. A new lot (referred to as lot D, behind University and Kays Hall)
will add 45 spaces.
Formerly, the grass lot was used by students as they
made their own spaces, often times being issued parking citations.
Originally this was going to be a gravel surface lot. However, it was
recently decided to pave and stripe the lot. This new parking area will
be general student parking – open to anyone.
In addition, the gravel lot east of the ABI building under construction
will be paved and striped student parking (accommodating 300 vehicles). And, the lot behind the College of Business was upgraded
this summer to
alleviate flooding and drainage issues.
The planned "Kays Field" lot by the College of Communications has
been delayed. This project is going to be initiated in the spring, and
will be completed next summer to be ready by fall 2004. It will be a
combination of reserved and open student parking. (The present parking
areas beside the library will become reserved parking, and Kays field
will become open parking with around 300 spaces.)
Did you know that there are currently 7,606 parking spaces –
reserved, open and deck spaces –- on the campus of ASU?
