New bus stop offers greater campus access

Thanks to the Student Leadership Advisory Coucil (SLAC), students, faculty, and staff can catch a CABS bus at the new stop on John Herrick Drive behind the Veterinary Medicine Academic Building. The SLAC worked with the office of Traffic and Parking in order to provide better bus access for the College of Veterinary Medicine campus.

The stops are serviced by the CABS Med Center Express, connecting the the college with the Buckeye parking lots and the Medical Center. The bus comes every 15-30 minutes on weekdays (including during academic breaks) and runs from 5.30 a.m. until 1 a.m. This should make getting to classes, to the Biological Research Tower, supply center and the Medical Center much easier for students, staff, and faculty!

Congratulations to SLAC for making this bus stop possible! The SLAC is a group primarily composed of professional students, but also includes Veterinary Public Health and graduate student representatives. Some of the goals of the organization are to provide self-government by the graduate students of the CVM, to serve as liaison between faculty, staff and graduate students, to disseminate policy information from the Graduate School and the College of Veterinary Medicine to the graduate student population, and to act as a clearinghouse of opportunities for the graduate students of the department (i.e. career, grant, funding, etc.).
