We want every Senior who wants to attend to be able to do so, but we must have a final count by Friday at 3 pm.

STUDENTS: With the end of the school year fast approaching many of you will decide to drive to school. For those of you without a MW parking pass that will present a problem if you park off campus on the side streets. Word has it that cars will be ticketed and possibly towed and that's lot of money and a big headache. So if you currently do not have a MW parking pass AND you want to drive to school in the next few weeks, you must stop down to the Dean's office AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.
