Speed Limits on Campus

Due to numerous complaints, The Office of Campus Police and Security is stepping up campus patrols and enforcement of the speed limits (this means traffic violation tickets) for everyone's safety. Please plan your day accordingly so you do not have to speed to get to your destination on time. Thanks in advance for making Wayne Community College a safe place to learn and work.
Overflow parking on grass is only permitted behind the PINE building. You will receive a ticket for parking on grass anywhere else.
