Safety, Parking and Traffic

Douglas Road Construction Moves to Phase 2
While the intersection of Douglas and Ironwood roads will close beginning Monday, July 18, Douglas Road between Twyckenham and Ironwood will not reopen that day. Work crews will install the final pavement surface to that stretch of Douglas Road this week, which will delay the opening to Monday, July 25. When it reopens, access to the Warren Golf Course and to the neighborhood south of Warren will be easier.  
Thank you for your patience as Douglas Road is widened to four lanes, which will ultimately improve commute times for those who live east and north of campus.

Canvas Tip: Send Grades from Canvas to Registrar
Starting with the summer semester, each Canvas course site includes a link in the site menu to send grades to the registrar. This link accepts the letter grade equivalent of the student’s calculated grade in the course. Grades can also be submitted directly to the registrar’s system if instructors choose to make grading adjustments.
