Important vehicle registration information for fall 2018

Thursday, April 19th, 2018

Students: Be sure to check the Daily Bruin and your email during early summer to find out the dates when vehicle registration will open this summer. Parking permits for on-campus students will be issued on a first-come, first served basis based on fall class standing, so don’t miss your registration time window! Seniors will be given the first registration window, then juniors, etc.

Commuter and graduate students will have the first opportunity to register, so please do so by Aug. 1 to assure that your permit will arrive before school starts.

For anyone who registers after mid-August, please use your campus PO box, or the address you will be commuting from as your mailing address, as it will take up to two to three weeks for your permit to arrive to the address you indicate.

All students will need to have your DMV registration slip in front of you when you register on MyGFU, as the database will ask for information from that slip. A parking brochure will also be mailed with your parking permit, and lot and location changes are likely due to ongoing construction, so be sure to read it before arriving on campus!

Have a great summer and keep watching this space, your email and the George Fox Security Services Facebook page for further updates.

Employees: If you could help get the word out to students about vehicle registration, it would be greatly appreciated.

Contact Nadine Kincaid (nkincaid@georgefox.edu) with any questions.

Make plans to see ‘Living Out’ tonight or tomorrow

Thursday, April 19th, 2018

The university’s theatre department invites the community to the show Living Out, playing at the Chehalem Cultural Center’s Black Box Theater (415 E. Sheridan St.) tonight and tomorrow (Friday and Saturday) at 7:30 p.m. both evenings.

Living Out tells the story of a Salvadoran nanny and the Anglo lawyer she works for. The play explores what is the shared humanity between them and the differences wrought by race, class and Ana’s immigration status. The play also looks at the prejudices and misconceptions between Anglos and Latinos. How do we make someone “the other”? What is the cost of doing so? The play is both outrageously funny and ultimately tragic.

Tickets are “pay what you want” at the door (no reservations). Contact JeanneAnn Faris (jfaris15@georgefox.edu) for more information.
