Pedestrians of Campus

Student Council has been hearing many concerns of rogue cyclists darting through the walkways of campus, putting the walkers in danger, and the inverse of inconsiderate walkers grouping up and not sharing the sidewalk with these cyclists. This is a voiced concern, so please share the sidewalks and use common courtesy when commuting to and from classes. Stay to the right and please don’t take up the full extent of the path when walking. Cyclists, slow down and please be aware of others on the walks. If you have any concerns or questions, please contact Adam McMikle at ajmcm8@mst.edu.
