PREVIOUS ANNOUNCEMENTS
 
Online vehicle registration for 2017-18
To date, 435 students have registered their vehicles for next year. Are you one of them? If not, be sure to register before June 27. It's best to register now so you don’t forget after May Term. The process only takes a minute or two.

Why register now? 
1. Avoid the $25 late registration fee. Any vehicle registered after June 27 incurs that fee.
2. Get a parking voucher, good for one ticket.
3. Maximize the chances of being assigned to the parking lot of your choice. Not registering guarantees you’ll be assigned to D Lot.
To register, log in on InfoCenter. Under “Offices” select “Parking & Safety” and then click on “Parking Registration.” If you register correctly, you’ll receive a confirmation email. If you have any problems registering, contact Campus Security or visit the Campus Security Office weekdays from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

End-of-the-year shuttles will be running to various area airports and bus stations Friday, May 26.

Film crew on campus
A Los Angeles-based independent film crew will be on campus through mid-May to produce a faith-based film inspired by the story of Mike Jensen ’96, former lecturer in music and voice instructor at Wartburg, who is battling brain cancer.
