Food trucks, fire pits, comfortable seating and events give students something to look forward to on weekend evenings. It's also a place to enjoy other planned activities, study and eat any time.

Campus demonstrations need to follow these rules

Campus demonstrations may be organized only by members of the University community and must be peaceful and orderly. Demonstrations must adhere to time, place and manner restrictions designed to (a) protect the health and safety of participants and the campus community and (b) avoid disruption of the regular and essential operations of the University.   Given the University's COVID-19 regulations restricting external visitors, demonstrations that involve participants who are not part of the campus community may be directed to the periphery of campus.  
To receive approval, demonstrations must be registered in advance and in writing with the Vice President for Campus Safety and University Operations, Mike Seamon. That office will review the registration and advise whether the demonstration is approved, subject to time, place and manner restrictions. Organizers of a demonstration must acknowledge agreement to any time, place and manner modifications before proceeding. Campus security personnel may be on hand to ensure the safety of all — including those participating in an approved demonstration — and to prevent any disruption of regular University operations.
