NOTICES: There will be a chilled water outage in the Allied Health/Nursing Building beginning at 6:00 AM on Saturday, December 15th.  A contractor will be making some piping modifications and will complete the work by 7:00 PM on Saturday.  During this time there will be no air conditioning in the building.

Tomorrow morning we begin a project to resurface the elevated bridge between the Residence Hall and the Medical Education Building .  The work is scheduled to continue until January 4.  During this time the bridge will be closed to pedestrian traffic.  To minimize the adverse impact upon our students, Campus Police has graciously agreed to provide 24-hour security so that we can open the 1st floor entrance to the MEB on the Bolivar Street side each day and continuing until 5:00 PM next Friday.  If need be, we will consider the same accommodation when we reopen following the holidays until the work is complete.       

On Monday, December 17, and continuing through January 2, we will begin a project to restore the terrazzo flooring on the 3rd and 4th floors of the MEB.  This work is scheduled after normal work hours to minimize impact on our faculty, staff and students.  In addition to the sound of large buffing type machines there will be some odors beginning December 22.
