Thank You Students that moved to the pasture lot!!!!!
From the grounds department: A huge thank you to the students who parked in the pasture lot for the snow parking ban! First, just moving the cars makes clean-up from a storm on campus so much easier. Second, parking in a straight line helped make the snow plowing process much smoother... Great job!!!
