Chancellor invites everyone to Fall Convocation Oct. 18

    The parking committee of the University of Minnesota Crookston has instated 30 free parking spaces next to Kiehle building.

    These spaces are open to everyone, including Crookston community members. The goal is to facilitate the attendance of day time, on-campus events such as Fall Convocation which will be on Thursday, October 18 at 12:30 p.m.

    “The parking committee has provided additional ‘no permit required’ parking spaces for visitors in the lot west of the Kiehle Building,” explained Dave Danforth, director of Facilities and Operations at UMC. “We hope that this will encourage people from Crookston to come visit campus for events that they may be interested in attending, shop at the UMC bookstore, take advantage of the Eagle’s Nest dining opportunities or meet with faculty and staff on site, or just to simply walk the grounds, without having to go through the process of getting a temporary parking pass or risking a $25 parking ticket.”

    Since coming on board in 2017, U of M Crookston Chancellor Mary Holz-Clause has made making the campus more visitor-friendly a top priority.
