Greetings from the University Village! In early January, the Village welcomed our new residents for winter quarter into our community. The Sustainable Planning and Action Committee (SPAC) hit the ground running with the planning of the University Village Community Garden, which is set to open in mid-February. The Residential Education team bid farewell for now to our Complex Coordinator, Kyle Sirowy, who has left to work on the spring voyage of Semester at Sea! Kyle will travel to places like Tibet, South Africa, and Brazil until early May while working with students on their voyage. We will miss him greatly, but are very excited for his upcoming adventures! On January 20th, the Village hosted “The Price is Wrong!” where Cal Poly Federal Credit Union and the Career Center came to educate students on proper money management as well as preparing for the job search. Resume critiques were given, and a good time was had by all! At the end of the month the Village had our first ever Emergency Preparedness Evacuation, in which students were educated on the proper evacuation locations should an emergency happen, and received free fire extinguisher training, coffee, and pastries. All is well at the Village!
Use Protection! $10 will get you two vanilla lattes at Starbucks, or a large pepperoni pizza, or it can give you peace of mind for an entire academic quarter! The Village Bike Station has opened to offer security and convenience for all campus riders by providing a 24-hour entry card activated self-park area. The space is air-conditioned and under constant video surveillance, with free access to repair tools and air pumps. “With a rise in bicycle thefts around campus, we wanted to create a bike station that would protect students property with the added benefits of essential tools to help any bike enthusiast,” says Ken Fisher, Director of Foundation Housing Services. For more information or to reserve your bike space, go to the Business Office at the Community Center of University Village.
