It must be spring — it MUST — if we’re talking about the annual Natural and Applied Sciences Heirloom Plant Sale. This year’s event — the 17th annual — will take place Saturday, May 18 (yup, that’s Commencement Day) in the Lab Sciences Greenhouse. We’ll have more details soon on this terrific tradition. In the meantime, mark those calendars and prepare those palates — a dizzying array of peppers, tomatoes and other veggies (along with plenty of unusual herbs and flowers) await!
Already broadcast to all employees but repeated here for the record and the benefit of our off-campus readers: Facilities Management reports that, affecting the Laboratory Science sidewalks and Instructional Services Court, they will be finishing the utility tunnel project by excavating the tunnel and waterproofing the exterior walls. This requires closing the entire sidewalk along the east side (Kress Center side) of Laboratory Science and Environmental Science buildings for the months of June and July. Emergency egress points will still remain open during this time. They will also need to close Instructional Services Court to all vehicular traffic from May 21-25, and pedestrian traffic on one sidewalk that leads to the west entrance of the Laboratory Sciences Building from May 15 to June 8.
