No Parking on West Side of River Starting August 26 
Venderly Bridge parking In years past, parking for around 100 cars was allowed on the west side of the river. This year, however, the city's project to extend the biking/hiking trail from the west end of the Venderly Bridge across old Carrington Field and up the tow path to St. Joe Center Road will preclude that parking. Starting August 26, vehicular parking will be prohibited east of the entrance into the Hefner Soccer Fields (the PLEX).

Documentary Film Shows Consequences of
Texting and Driving

As a campus with a large commuter population, texting and driving is something that may affect us every day----even if we are unaware of it. Now a powerful storyteller has described the aftermath of four such incidents that ended in catastrophic injury or death, including one in nearby Bluffton. 

From One Second to the Next,
a new public-service documentary from acclaimed director Werner Herzog and AT&T, is now available online for public viewing. The film was sponsored by It Can Wait, a driver-safety campaign launched by AT&T in 2009 that now includes T-Mobile, Sprint, and Verizon Wireless.
