Happy Weekend!
Here are a few things to do while enjoying the beautiful weather!
Grab your mask and explore the outdoors! Get a meal from ISU Dining and have a picnic at one of Ames' 36 parks. Or, rent a kayak, canoe or paddle board from Outdoor Rec Services and enjoy some time on the water at Ada Hayden Park or Peterson Park in the north part of Ames.

Add some fresh decor to your room with the Memorial Union's Paint Your Own Pottery (it's Snack Bowl week) or try one of their Art-2-Go kits. It's a fun way to get creative with friends!
When you're out and about, please note the Ames City Council implemented a mandatory face covering ordinance that requires face coverings in all public spaces. It means you're required to wear one when you are outside and can't stay at least six feet away from others and when you are inside any indoor public setting (grocery stores, retail stores, convenience stores, etc.). Just make sure you remember your mask when you head out this weekend.

If you plan on going to any events - on or off campus - follow the social gathering policy. Wear a mask and follow the physical distancing guidelines. If you don't follow those rules you could be subject to discipline under the Student Code of Conduct. It is important that you follow these new rules to protect the health of our community.

Do Your Part,
Stop Contamination
Single-stream recycling is an easier and more convenient way to recycle. Instead of sorting recyclable materials into its own container, you just drop them all into your blue recycling bin in your room. A complete list of what can and cannot be recycled can be found here.
Once your bin is full, dump the recyclables into the green bin outside of your residence hall. Do not put non-recyclables into the bins - this includes plastic bags. This causes contamination. If a plastic bag is thrown in the green collection bins, even if it contains recyclable materials, the entire bin is contaminated and has to be dumped in the landfill instead of going to the recycling center.

Print Stations Available at Parks Library
Mobile printing is now available in Parks Library at the Print Release station located inside the front door. With Print Release stations, you are able to print to the campus black-and-white queue from personal computers (laptops and desktops), from public computers around campus or from off campus. Once a print job is sent to the queue, it stays there until you get to the Print Release station and print the document.
