This Is A Public Parking Announcement!


Please be extremely careful when
driving around the campus.

The people are small.

Be courteous of the school's neighbors.
Please do not block driveways or double park.

Also, watch where you park.  Nobody likes tickets
and the people that write them have been known
to really hit the jackpot the
first week of school.  You have been warned.
