With forecast heavy rains for Saturday and the potential for both river and flash flooding, students are asked to avoid parking in low-lying areas of parking lots C, D, E (along the tree line), F (eastern most entrance by the pond), and N-Annex. Cars should now be on higher ground within these lots or in Lot F (by Konover Campus Center). Vehicles should be returned to their assigned parking lots by 8 p.m. on Sunday, April 21.

Building as Prayer: Campus Sukkah
This project explores the connection between design, making, and prayer in the design and construction of a campus sukkah by architecture students, working in collaboration with the campus Hillel Jewish student organization.
The process of design and construction of this sukkah is modeled on prayer. This college-community project brought people of different faiths together, and the act of building was a very important part of the project: prayer in the context of community, and community amid the context of prayer, which is the essence of Hillel.
