2015-16 campus snow communications
It’s snow season. Be snow safe!
- Don’t rush – give yourself time to get to work
- Drive carefully
- Dress warmly
- Wear sensible shoes
- Watch where you are walking
- Shorten the length of your stride while walking
- Check the forecast before heading outside
- Do not dart out in front of or behind snow-removal equipment. It is large, loud and difficult to stop quickly.
- Make eye contact with a snow-removal equipment operator before crossing in front of him/her.
Salt and ice-melt compound
- Dial 353-1760 to report icy spots on campus.
- It takes time for the ice-melt compound to take effect
Sidewalks and parking lots
- Do not park so close to the sidewalk that your car’s bumper hangs over it.
- Avoid parking in the part of a lot that has not yet been cleared.
- Park where it’s plowed or wait a few minutes for the driver to finish and then park freely in the cleared lot
Residence hall parking loops
- Parking is prohibited in residence hall loops between 2 a.m. and 6 a.m.
- With 65 people plowing, 26,000+ spaces must be cleared before 6 a.m.
To request services or to report dangerous spots on campus, call 353-1760.
If you can’t call, tweet IPF (@MSUFacilities) to report snow concerns (and to send photos).

- The existing intercollegiate golf facility was built in 1958.
- Built with residential-grade construction, the building requires ongoing maintenance.
- The conversion of the outdoor pavilion into an indoor practice area in 2006 served to extend the building’s functionality, but falls far short in comparison to competing Big Ten facilities.
- A new facility is necessary to enable the recruitment, training and development of future athletes and to ensure continued success of the MSU Golf Team.
- The project is anticipated to include:
- a more prominent entry;
- coaches’ offices;
- locker rooms;
- indoor practice green;
- public and player lounges and gathering spaces;
- public restrooms;
- small weight training area;
- club repair;
- display space.
- The project is located within the Forest Akers Golf Course, with an entrance on Harrison Road, in the athletic and recreation district.
- All areas of the west course to remain open
- Periodic traffic impacts to facilitate material deliveries
- Start of construction: May 2015
- End of construction: February 2016
