Olin graduate students may be wondering who took over their lounge in Bauer Hall. The WashU and Commission on Presidential Debates teams have moved in and will be handing out official swag bags to the media from the lounge, after reporters pick up their credentials in the Active Learning Lab. Olin is at the center of the Debate activities that move into high gear today.
By the way, graduate students can find their mail files in Knight Hall 239 (located near the WCC). Files will be moved back to the lounge Monday, October 10th.
Meanwhile, the countdown clock on the official debate website is in the single digits. More than 2,500 media are expected to arrive on campus this week and networks will be broadcasting live from Mudd Field and Brookings Quad. Miles of fencing have been installed around the Danforth Campus, and even more around the inner sanctum of the debate: the Athletic Complex.
By the end of the week, parking on or around campus will be very limited. Millbrook Garage on Throop Drive will be reserved exclusively for media Saturday and Sunday. Forsyth and Big Bend will be closed to traffic this weekend. Campus access will be limited. The Presidential Debate takes place Sunday, Oct. 9, 8 p.m. CDT.
Please note: This weekend, you must have your WUSTL ID to get on campus and access buildings.
