Beginning August 1, 2018, a new pedestian path will open in order to enable the construction of a student enrollment center, two additional recreation fields, additional housing, a student wellness and counseling center and a competition swimming pool.  Those facilities are scheduled to open in  Fall 2020.   The new path is a paved sidewalk 400 feet to the west of the path used during the 2017-18 school year and borders the new Bobcat Soccer Field. The current pedestrian path will close following August 20, 2018.

During construction, the majority of lower campus parking will be accommodated in the Bellevue Lot.  The lighted path connects the Bellevue Lot to Scholars Lane. During construction, bicycle access will continue along Lake Road to Scholars Lane. Please visit the bicycle advisory page for latest details.   A permanent bicycle access route that will become fully operational in Fall 2020 is being developed as part of the campus expansion. 

Estimated walking time from the Bellevue Lot to campus locations:

Scholars Lane: 5 minutes

Visitors Center: 9 minutes

Kolligian Library: 12 minutes

Classroom Office Building 1: 16 minutes
