Parking Permits Expire Next Week
On Wednesday, June 30, all current University parking permits will expire. To ensure uninterrupted access to your current lot, the Medical Center Parking Office and River Campus Parking Office are asking all faculty, staff, and students to renew their permits online as soon as possible.

Do You Have a Vuvuzela?
Calling all World Cup-crazy faculty, staff, and students. If you have a vuvuzela—those long plastic horns that are all rage in South Africa—or any other soccer-friendly noisemaker, join University vice president Paul Burgett at the center of Eastman Quad on Friday at 1:30 pm to be part of a video serenade as Rochester celebrates World Cup 2010. If you have flags, scarves, team jerseys, etc., bring them along.
