Campus Announcements

Summer hours
This summer, in an effort to conserve energy, the campus will again adopt a modified work schedule with normal business hours of 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. with a 30-minute lunch break. These hours will be effective on Tuesday, May 30 and continue through Friday, August 18. Authorized supervisors may modify individual work schedules to address special situations as long as offices are staffed during these announced hours.

As in past summers, this schedule enables the University to realize substantial budget savings by reducing energy consumption during the late afternoon hours when energy demand is highest.

For questions or concerns that cannot be answered by individual office supervisors or managers, contact Elizabeth Redmond, interim associate vice president for Human Resources, at 278-4488 or via e-mail at lredmond@csus.edu.

Hornet Bookstore groundbreaking
University Enterprises announces that there will be a groundbreaking ceremony for construction of Sacramento State's new Hornet Bookstore building on Thursday, May 11 at 2 p.m. in front of the redwood grove adjacent to Parking Structure II.

Located on a major pedestrian thoroughfare near the University Union and Serna Plaza, the three-story, 93,000 square-foot building will add a bold retail component for students, faculty, staff, and campus visitors. When completed in 2007 it will house the University's bookstore, operated by the Follett Higher Education Group, and University Enterprises administrative offices.

Volunteers needed for NCAA Outdoor Championships
More than 1,000 of the top collegiate athlete in the nation will compete June 7-10 on the Sacramento State campus in a nationally-televised event—the 2006 NCAA Division I Outdoor Track and Field Championships. Celebrating its 100-year anniversary, the Outdoor Track and Field event is the oldest championship sponsored by the NCAA as well as the largest championship in terms of participants.

It takes hundreds of volunteers to put on an event of this magnitude, so the local organizing committee is asking for help. Anyone interested in volunteering in one of the numerous positions available during this championship event can do so by contacting Lois Mattice, Sacramento State associate athletics director, at 278-7548.
