Temporary Water Outage – Life Science Building Saturday, June 4th @ 8 am

In order to facilitate a construction project in the Life Science Building, the contractor would like to schedule a temporary water outage for the entire building for Friday evening, June 3rd, beginning at 5:00 p.m. until approximately 9:00 p.m.

I have checked Saturday’s room usage for this building and resolved any possible conflict with scheduled classes.  Please check with your fellow faculty and staff members, and let us know as soon as possible if there are any conflicts, questions, or concerns about this water outage.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and thank you for your cooperation.

Closure of Pedestrian Pathways Between Carlisle, Preston, and Ransom Halls

In order to facilitate a construction project at Carlisle Hall, fencing and scaffolding is been installed around the perimeter of the building.  The installation of this fencing and scaffolding will necessitate the closure of the current pedestrian pathways between Carlisle Hall, Preston Hall, and Ransom Hall for the duration of this project which will take 30-60 days.  Signs will be placed around the area to identify the modified pathways.  Please let your fellow faculty and staff members know as you feel necessary.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.  If you have any questions or concerns, please contact either Nick Myers at or Don Lange at .
