The Commencement Committee will be conducting a short series of fireworks tests on the east side of campus on Friday afternoon, October 17, 2014.

 

Note that these will be very short tests, and the shells will be (relatively) quiet as compared to “normal” fireworks.

 

As of 2:00 and 2:15 PM today, Terrace and Towers Dining Halls are closed for Fall Break. Campus Center Dining Hall will remain open for continuous dining until 7:30 PM. 

Click here or see below for our posted Hours of Operation. Dining Services' regular schedule will resume on Monday, October 20th.
