The route on campus begins at University Way and Valley Falls taking you past Health Services. You will follow the route on University Way to the HEC building by taking the roundabout circle onto Gramling Drive. University Police and staff from Parking Services will be located at key intersections to direct the traffic. Excited staff from Enrollment Services will be among some of the first you encounter, ensuring students have paid their bill and do not need to stop in to see anyone from Student Accounts or Financial Aid.
