Steam Whistle Testing Underway This Week
With the fall semester just a few weeks away, campus is moving full steam ahead in preparing for classes. This semester, that means adjusting the schedule of the steam whistle to coincide with a new class schedule.
Testing on the whistle is underway and will continue through Aug. 4. Those on campus the next two weeks may hear intermittent whistles at irregular times. A Facilities Management steam outage will temporarily suspend the notifications on Aug. 5. The beloved whistle will be ready to sound on its new schedule when classes resume Aug. 21.
The new class schedule provides longer pass times of 15 minutes between classes and adjusts the length of classes on Tuesdays and Thursdays. The changes are part of a series of recommendations from a Classroom and Academic Scheduling Task Force convened by the Office of the Provost. See the full schedule.
