The Showcase (formally known as Late Nite Madness) will be held in the Events Center on Friday, Oct. 11.
You all pay fees. Did you know that some of your Campus Life Fees go to student organization events? If you are a member of a student org, please consider applying for a CLF Event Grant. You can find out all the information here: http://www.binghamton.edu/campus-activities/clfgrants.html
You have now heard that President Barack Obama will be visiting the Binghamton University campus on Friday, Aug. 23, the day you are able to return to campus.
As you can imagine, the President’s visit will prompt roads to be closed along his driving route, and will also cause parts of the campus to be closed to traffic − and pedestrians − for an extended period of time. From 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Friday, the main entrance to campus and the Brain around campus will be closed to traffic. During this period, there will be limited access to residence halls from the East Access Road and West Access Road.
A map indicating Friday’s closures can be found at http://www.binghamton.edu/visiting-campus/pdfs/pres-visit-map-c.pdf.
Because of the difficulty these closures will create for you as you return for the fall semester, we strongly encourage you to time your return to campus to avoid arriving between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m.
We look forward to your return and hope you’ll join in the fun at the 20th annual University Fest celebration from 1-5 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 24, on the Harpur Quad, followed by Shindig at the Fountain from 5-8 p.m.!
Tickets for President Obama’s visit to Binghamton University will be distributed to students, faculty and staff via an online lottery pool. Ticket recipients will be drawn at random on Wednesday at 12PM Eastern. One entry will be permitted per person, and only one ticket will be awarded per entry selected. Only Binghamton University students, faculty and staff are eligible to enter the lottery. If you are a Binghamton University student, faculty and/or staff, please visit http://www.binghamton.edu/obama-town-hall.
During Binghamton’s first Alumni Leaders Conference, some of the alumni stopped by to offer advice to college seniors about to graduate.
As warm weather arrives, thoughts turn to campfires and grilling on campus. If you are interested in having a campfire, you must receive a permit through Environmental Health and Safety. Grilling and BBQs do not require a permit, but must comply with specific safety rules. Contact EH&S at 777-2211 to request the fact sheet for more information.
