New Student Center Emergency Exit
The door at the north end of the student center has been made an emergency exit, which means an alarm will sound if someone goes through the door to the outside. In the past, the door was often propped open to allow someone reentry, but is a risk from a security standpoint. While this is not always convenient, it helps keep people safe and secure.
