WARNING: Do not park or leave your vehicle unattended in the no parking areas in front of the academic building. I understand that Senior Thesis is rapidly approaching and students are unloading materials for their Thesis show and it is just easier to unload in front of the school, Unfortunately parking enforcement does not care. Parking enforcement is not only ticketing vehicles that are parked in no parking areas but they are also towing them away. As much as we would like to help you out security has no say over the city parking rules. If you are unloading materials please use the loading zone immediately to the east of the front entrance or use the loading dock.. You are allowed 15 minutes in the loading zone. Once the vehicle is hooked up to the tow truck the vehicle belongs to them. Remember it only takes the tow truck a matter of seconds to hook up to a vehicle. Avoid the hassle and park in the appropriate area. If you are unsure where the load ing zone is stop by the security desk and we will show you where it is.

LRC Tip of the Week: Staying Focused!

Article *
If you don’t know how to focus and keep track of what is most urgent you will get that feeling of overwhelm that will cause you to not be at your best. One strategy is to keep a list of urgent only tasks on a note pad that you can always glance at, so when you have a few minutes to tackle your urgent list items, you will know exactly where to start.

For additional tips on staying on top of assignments and projects, stop in the LRC to work with a tutor to come up with ideas that will work for you!
