REMINDER: From December 1st through March 31st there is no overnight parking on the 4th floor of either garage. The 4th floors will also be closed during and right after snow storms to facilitate snow removal. When a parking ban is lifted residential students have 4 hours to remove their vehicles from the 2nd floor of the Shakespeare Garage. We strongly encourage all students to move their vehicles back to available open air parking lots so there is room in the garages for commuter student parking.
The Eastern Police Department would like to thank everyone that helped make the 19th COPS Open Rec. Night a success!

Please use caution especially when out at night. Always practice safe traveling measures both on and off campus. Walk with a partner whenever you can and let someone know where you are going.
As always, be vigilant and watchful of suspicious behavior or individuals on campus and notify Campus Police if you see something occurring that seems to be out of the ordinary.
