Skateboarding on Campus Still a "No-Go":
Last fall, Associated Students (AS) opened SDSU's first on-campus bike lane, and it's fine to ride your bike in the bike lane. But according to SDSU Police Code, skateboarding is not permitted — either in the bike lane or anywhere else on campus.

It's possible that AS will put forward a resolution to lift the ban on skateboards in the bike lane. Until that happens, however, the ban is still in place.

(Note: Also prohibited on campus are coasters, rollerskates, in-line skates, scooters, toy vehicles, and other similar devices.)

Fight Back Against the Flu:
Flu shots are available at Student Health Services for $15. (Red ID required.) Get vaccinated today!
