Heat, heat, and some more heat!

TAKE NOTE A heatwave coming to a town near you.

Heat Warning – Very hot conditions are expected to occur during most of this week across the interior, with the hottest temperatures Wednesday and Thursday. In addition to the daytime heat, overnight temperatures will be very warm. This multiple-day stretch of very hot weather will pose a potential health hazard, especially to those who work outdoors, are engaged in prolonged outdoor activities, or do not have access to air conditioning in the home.


Network Services is planning an upgrade to wireless service in the library,  which has the highest level of wi-fi use on campus, especially during dead and finals weeks. Contractors will install the latest multi-user wireless access points in the library later in August.
