2. Construction project likely to affect IUPUI community
Due to unpermitted and off-route trucks with oversized loads, more than 400 bridge strikes have been recorded at several bridges over Interstates 65 and 70 between the north and south splits in downtown Indianapolis since 1999. So to ensure the safety of the travelling public, the Indiana Department of Transportation will soon launch a major construction project that will close the busy interstate for up to 90 days.

More info at link.

3. IUPUI ranked in Nuvo's 'Best of Indy'
A mid-summer tradition has been renewed with NUVO's annual "Best of Indy" edition, in which IUPUI is ranked second in the "Best Local College or University" category.

The NUVO issue has been around for two decades for the news weekly, and always generates plenty of good-natured conversation with its ranking in everything from best entertainment venues, best events, best food and drink sites (of all types) and plenty more.

4. Videos needed for Impact IUPUI campaign
Have you benefited from a new building? Research dollars? A study abroad trip or scholarship? Then you've probably benefited from the campus' $1.4 billion Impact IUPUI fundraising campaign, the most successful fundraising campaign in IU history.

To celebrate the end of the campaign, we're looking for short 10-15-second videos -- no need for a fancy camera, your smartphone will work -- saying "thanks" for how philanthropy to IUPUI has helped you. Select videos will be chosen to be shown at a wrap-up event for the campaign next month and, if your video is chosen, you'll win a t-shirt.

7. Wheels with no strings attached
This fall, Zipcar is coming to IUPUI for all students, faculty and staff who are at least 18 years old. Zipcar is car-sharing, an alternative to bringing a car to school, that gives members 24/7 access to vehicles parked on campus. Bringing a car-sharing service to IUPUI was one of the priorities of the IUPUI Transportation Sustainability Committee.

Low hourly and daily rates include gas, insurance, and 180 miles per day to go wherever you want to go. Members can reserve cars online or with a smart phone for as little as an hour or up to four days. This semester, enjoy all the freedom of owning a car without any of the hassle.
