Got leftover eclipse glasses? Donate them in Stevens Center

Tuesday, August 22nd, 2017

Got leftover eclipse glasses? George Fox is collecting eclipse glasses for Astronomers without Borders to be sent to schools in South America and Asia when eclipses cross those continents in 2019.

Drop off your eclipse glasses at the Information Desk in the Stevens Center!

Please park where your parking permit allows

Tuesday, August 22nd, 2017

Students and employees: With the influx of new and returning students arriving this week, it is critical that students already on campus start parking immediately in their assigned lots. This is especially critical in the lot behind Canyon Commons, as deliveries are being hampered by illegally parked student cars blocking loading ramps.

Commuters can park in the Bauman or Le Shana lot until the completion of the 99W lot later this week. Resident East students need to park in the red or red-striped areas (Le Shana lot) only, and Resident West students need to park in the solid blue areas only. Likewise, graduate students need to park in the green areas around the Roberts Center. The only exceptions for these next few days are the Austin (purple) and Morse (orange) lots, which are nearing completion. If you have a Morse or Austin lot permit, please begin parking in the lots as soon as they are completed.

Employees working in the Stevens Center: Please begin parking in the staff lots west of the Stevens building, as the Pennington lot and that block of Sheridan Street fronting the Pennington lot are now for residential students only. And on Thursday and Friday, all staff should park in the 99W lot or the Bauman lot in order to welcome our new students!

Here is a link to the parking brochure. Questions? Contact Nadine Kincaid at nkincaid@georgefox.edu.
