Calling for nominations for the 2013 Annual Facman Employee Awards! Nominations are due on or before Friday, November 1, 2013.
Students on the Look Out: The Student Audit Team handles data collection for various mediums on campus. They collect data on asphalt to show the deteriation over time and also give a number out of 100 to see if it needs to be replaced. With concrete they do something similar and also find all the trip hazards that need to be ground down. This helps protect the university students, visitors and staff from any injuries.
