The first roundabout for Belmont’s campus will be operational Tuesday, April 1 at the intersection of 15th and Acklen Avenues.The Belmont roundabout will be one-lane, unlike the two-lane roundabout found at the far end of Music Row. Here are a few tips for navigating roundabouts:
- Slow down as you approach the roundabout.
- Yield to pedestrians and bicyclists crossing the roadway.
- When entering a roundabout, yield to vehicles already in the roundabout. Do not cross into the roundabout until all traffic from the left has cleared.
- Enter the roundabout to your right, and drive in a counter-clockwise direction
- Use your turn signal when you reach your exit from the roundabout
- Do not stop, pass or change lanes within a roundabout.
- If an emergency vehicle approaches, exit the roundabout immediately and then pull over.
In addition, the campus community is asked to please travel the Acklen Avenue access to campus slowly as this is an active construction site. Necessary road work around the Wedgewood Academic Center is forcing Acklen Avenue (from 15th to the North Garage alley) to be closed to one lane at various times. Please plan ahead when commuting to campus—either expect traffic delays in the areas around North and Baskin Garages or plan for a few extra minutes of walking and park in the Dickens/Horrell garages.
The 2014 SGA Presidential and Vice Presidential elections have opened on BruinLink! In addition, two amendments are on the ballot to be reviewed and voted on by the student body. Take time to review both and vote. Voting will close on Friday, March 21st at 4pm.
Additionally, a description of the consolidated Student Fee has been added to the Student Financial Services page on the Belmont website. SGA has worked hard with members of Senior Leadership to ensure that students are aware of how the fee is used. The description can be found at belmont.edu/sfs/student_fee.html .
Lastly, SGA wishes to congratulate Kappa Alpha Theta, Phi Kappa Tau, and Alpha Gamma Delta for placing in our second annual Canstruction event! Thank you to all who participated, we were able to donate over 1,000 lbs of cans to Second Harvest.
If you have any questions or concerns for SGA please email email@example.com. We are here to serve the students in the best way that we can.
