Campus Fest to Take Over University

For those who are bored, hungry, or a combination of both, Friday’s Campus Fest will satisfy everyone’s needs.

The sixth annual event, held on the lawn in front of University Hall and the Bowen-Thompson Student Union, will coincide with the All-Campus Picnic, providing free food courtesy of University Dining Services.

Besides the hotdogs, hamburgers and other tasty treats available, campus organizations will have tables set up to interact with the thousands of students expected to attend. The festival will act as a one-stop shop for students seeking to join a club.

“It’s an opportunity for the entire campus to come together,” said Gordy Heminger, Coordinator of Student Organization Services.

Also located on the lawn, several off-campus businesses will have stands set up to showcase their stores. Among them will be Al-Mar Lanes, Changes on Main and various shops from the Woodland Town Center.

Campus Fest and the other activities will be held from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Wooster Street

Update for Week

Work on Wooster East Wooster Street will continue between the Interstate 75 interchange and Enterprise Street the week of Sept.. 6. Also, work will continue in the Manville/East Wooster/Thurstin intersection and on South College Drive, Mercer and Campbell Hill roads and numerous side streets.

Because of the increase in pedestrian and vehicle traffic, everyone is encouraged to be very alert in the construction zones.

Utility work will continue the length of East Wooster Street, including on the south side of the street. This work will cause traffic delays and lane closures controlled by flaggers. Delays are expected . Motorists should be alert to shifts in driving lanes on East Wooster between State and Enterprise streets as utility work progresses in this area. Local traffic is strongly encouraged to avoid the area if possible.

The following drives are closed at their intersections with East Wooster but are scheduled to reopen by Wednesday: the McFall Center parking lot, South Hall loading dock, Lot D entrance and center Fraternity Row drive. The closures are to allow new concrete to cure in these drives. The concrete must cure about five days so it is hard enough to support vehicle traffic.

Widening work is scheduled to begin on the east side of Manville this week, and utility work will continue in the area.
