FOOTHILL DRIVE ONLINE WORKSHOP FOR THE IMPLEMENTATION STRATEGY


Foothill-Drive-Project
The university is a part of the Foothill Drive Implementation Strategy that will identify short term and long-term strategies to address traffic congestion, improve neighborhood connections, enhance safety and provide transportation options.

An open house was held by the Foothill Drive project team on March 31, 2016. There was strong attendance and many comments were received. For those who were unable to attend, all open house displays are available online here to view the information and provide input.

In this online workshop, you can find an overview of the project, the draft corridor goals and an opportunity to again leave feedback for the project team. Visit foothilldrive.org/workshop-1 to get started.

This project is a partnership among Salt Lake City, UDOT, UTA, Salt Lake County, University of Utah and Wasatch Front Regional Council.


UCARD DESIGN CONTEST WINNER


FirstPlace-Allen-Ward
After reviewing more than 400 submissions and gathering 5,400 votes, UCard is excited to announce the winner of its card design contest—University of Utah alumnus and super fan Allen Ward.

For his design bearing the University of Utah seal, Ward is credited with changing the face of UCard and was also awarded an iPad, along with the satisfaction that his design will soon be in wallets all across the Wasatch Front.

Coming in at second and third place were Justin Dahl and Jaden Hollady, respectively, who were awarded gift cards to the Campus Store.

UCards bearing the old design will remain valid for as long as the cardholder wishes to retain the card. Those wanting a new UCard may purchase one for $10 at the UCard office, beginning June 6. Newly designed UCards will be issued to incoming students this fall.

In concert with adopting its new look, UCard has also moved to a new location in Room 158 of the Union Building.

For more information about UCard and its benefits, visit ucard.edu.


SELF-GUIDED CAMPUS ART TOURS


frederick-albert-sutton
The University of Utah is well-known for its beautiful campus, but did you know that U buildings are often filled with stunning art? With graduation just around the corner, a self-guided campus art tour is a great way to show off the U campus to friends and family.

All of the buildings are accessible to the public and allows visitors to see art pieces that you would typically see in a museum. Take a walk through the Frederick Albert Sutton building to visit a “green” building that showcases beautiful displays related to earth sciences. Or, see the magnificent “Neurostar” sculpture hanging on the ceiling in the atrium of the James L. Sorenson Molecular Biotechnology Building (USTAR).

For more information on campus art, please visit the Self-Guided Campus Art Tours website.
