·      Students–– Worlds Fair Park Drive is closing this morning.   You will not be able to enter from the south end of the park and it will be closed past our parking gate.  Blackstock Lot parkers need to park along the edges of the International lot.  Friday will be crowded in WFP – plan ahead.  Share rides or consider the school bus for the day.  As the BassMasters Live event kicks off today we will get increased foot traffic across our campus.  Students should remember to close outside doors behind them and know we will be keeping you closer to the buildings and inside to stay out of crowds as they travel across our campus from the parking areas to the convention center.
