To accommodate the annual New Student Walk/Picnic event, 26th Street will be closed between Washington and Western.  Hundreds of students will be participating in the New Student Walk that goes from the MU Quad to Gill for convocation from 3:15-3:30 pm , so there will be heavy student traffic on the sidewalks at that time. The New Student Picnic will be held on 26th Street between Washington and Western (in front of Reser Stadium/Parker Plaza), which will be shut down to traffic.

For additional information, contact Natalie Rooney at
