Announcements:

• Planning & Construction Services is coordinating efforts to sandblast and remove paint layers from the curbs around West Georgia Drive. The Contractor has been working nights to accomplish this work with minimal disruption to campus activities.
The work on the east side of the campus will begin Friday, September 4, and continue through the Labor Day weekend to Monday, September 7.
All outer parking spaces in The Oaks and Bowdon Lots in line with West Georgia Drive must be
​empty of vehicles beginning at 1:00 pm on Friday afternoon, Sept. 4th, through Monday, September 7. If you need to park in either of these lots, keep your vehicle parked in an interior space away from that first line of spaces facing West Georgia Drive. Parking Services will have barricades in place to prevent parking in the other spaces.  
Please be cautious and aware as you move in or around construction areas on campus. If you have any questions, please contact Allen McManus in Planning & Construction Services: 770-550-3561.
