Ridge Street widening to close several parking lots

A major project to widen Ridge Street begins Monday (June 7). Campus parking will be affected, and drivers are advised to plan alternate routes and parking.

Lots N and 14, near Jerome Library; Lot O, by the Student Health Center; the Bowen-Thompson Student Union east lot, east of Overman Hall, and the small lot between Eppler and Hays Hall will all be closed for the duration of the project.

All of Willard Street, along with Ridge Street up to 100 feet beyond Willard, will be closed beginning next week.

Lot 1, north of the Health Center, and lots C and 16, north of Moore Musical Arts Center, will remain open throughout the project.

Drivers and pedestrians are reminded to observe all directional signs and be aware of safety precautions.

Monday's Monitor will provide more detail about the construction project.

Rugby team playing in collegiate invitational

BGSU's rugby team could get some national exposure in Columbus this weekend. The team is participating in the first-ever USA Sevens Rugby Collegiate Championship Invitational, a round-robin tournament featuring 16 historically significant collegiate rugby teams. The event runs through Sunday (June 6) at Columbus Crew Stadium.

Rugby Sevens features seven players per team playing on the same size pitch as a regular match. Many of the matches and the championship will be broadcast live on NBC from 4-6 p.m. tomorrow (June 5) and Sunday and Universal Sports from 2-4 p.m. will also offer full event coverage available on demand. It's the first time the sport will appear live on network television.

BGSU's first match is at 7:30 p.m. tonight (June 4) against Penn State. The team will take on Utah at 3:30 p.m. tomorrow.

Rugby Sevens will be an Olympic sport starting in 2016.
