Road Work near DeVos Campus!

May 16, 2018

Beginning Monday, May 21st, the City will begin a resurfacing project on Prospect between Fountain to Fulton.  The project is scheduled for May 21 thought June 15th.  The notice states that limited to no access to driveways will occur.  That may make it difficult to access the DeVos campus and the Admin building.  Additionally, due to our DeVos campus parking resurfacing project, parking is limited on the DeVos campus.  Please be aware of these issues if you need to visit the Admin building or Sneden Hall.  If parking by the Admin building is full, please use the student parking entrance and park on the top of the Sneden ramp.   Thank you for your patience!
