Parking Permits Available Aug. 28
The Department of Public Safety announces that parking permit fees for the 2006-2007 academic year have been established. CUA faculty and staff may purchase parking permits beginning Monday, Aug. 28.

Employees are encouraged to use payroll deduction for vehicle registration; this reduces the cost of administrating the parking program. Part-time benefit-eligible employees who will be employed with the university for a full academic semester may be eligible for payroll deduction; eligibility will be determined at the time of registration. Employees choosing not to utilize payroll deduction or who are not eligible to participate may pay for permits with cash, check or credit card (VISA, MasterCard or Discover).

Faculty and staff wishing to purchase parking permits must appear in person at the Campus Transportation Management Office, located in 121 Leahy Hall, and present a valid CUA ID and vehicle registration. Persons registering vehicles will be issued one hangtag permit. Registrants who use more than one vehicle for commuting purposes must transfer the permit between vehicles. Faculty permits are available to full-time faculty members, as determined by the Office of the Provost. For more information, contact Sharron Faulkner at 202-319-6064.

Nominations Sought for Cardinal Ambassadors
The Office of Enrollment Management invites CUA faculty and staff to nominate undergraduate students to be Cardinal Ambassadors. According to Kristin Lamontagne, assistant director of admissions, Cardinal Ambassadors are campus leaders and have an important role to play. The biggest influence on students' college enrollment decisions is the campus tour. Cardinal Ambassadors assist the admissions office with daily tours and special events.

Faculty and staff members wishing to nominate a student they consider outgoing, personable and energetic should e-mail their nominations to Lamontagne at

Water Aerobics and Swim Classes
The Department of Athletics announces it will offer water aerobics and swim classes to interested CUA faculty and staff.

Three eight-week water aerobics classes will be offered: low-impact, mid-impact and high-impact. Each class will meet twice a week, beginning Sept. 11. Cost is $140 per class.
