Beginning Thursday, April 20, at noon, and continuing throughout the weekend, all vehicles entering campus will pass through a security checkpoint. This will most likely cause traffic backups and delays. Please plan your travel time to and from campus accordingly

Due to guest and event parking, it may be more difficult to find a space in your usual lot. Please practice patience and add extra travel time for this purpose.

The Fitness Center (in the Sports Center) will remain open during Spring Fling Weekend. There are also a number of games scheduled to take place on the athletics fields during the weekend.

There will be no on-campus shuttle on Friday, April 21. The off-campus shuttle and the shopping shuttle will operate from Millard Circle on Friday, April 21, and Saturday, April 22.
