Events and Info

Snow Shovels Available in Each Residence Community

Each residence community received between two and six new scoop shovels thanks to the generosity of the University Parking Fund.  Good quality shovels are available for checkout at each front desk.  Please feel free to use the shovels to clear your car if buried, trapped by a snow ridge, or just to clear away the slush.


Over Twenty Student Workers Needed this Summer for Residential Life

The Department of Residential Life will have applications for summer jobs available after spring break. The summer jobs include: painters, student cleaners, student repair assistants, summer conference staff, and summer desk staff.  More information to come.


Hot Sandwiches Now Available in Carkoski Dining Hall

Many changes were made in the Carkoski Dining Hall over Winter Break.  Many students have especially appreciated the new toaster that allows students warm, melt-in-your-mouth sandwiches. If you haven't had the chance to try one, check the new hot sandwich stand in the back of the buffet area today!
