NSU launches new parking system

NSU’s new parking registration system is now available online. The system allows students and employees to register their vehicles in a contactless virtual format. After registration is complete, vehicle decals can be picked up from the One-Stop-Shop in the Horvitz Administration building. The Office of Facilities Management is asking for members of the NSU community to register their vehicles using the parking portal by Sept. 21. With the launch of this new system, parking citations will be suspended until Sept. 30. Students can find access to the Parking Portal in an email sent out Wednesday by the Office of Facilities Management. Additionally, more information and registration can be found under the public safety tab on NSU’s website. 

 

“Good Trouble:” Online panel discussion

On Sept. 21, the Broward Center for the Performing Arts will present a virtual event alongside the Rose and Alfred Miniaci Performing Arts Center on the recently released documentary “John Lewis: Good Trouble.” The event will be a film screening, followed by a live virtual discussion panel with the film’s director. Additionally, attendees have the opportunity to rent the film prior to the event for a fee, with a portion of the proceeds going toward the Broward Center’s Road to Recovery Fund. The rental allows viewers access to not only the film, but two other videos on the documentary. The virtual panel begins at 7 p.m. and registration for the event is required due to limited space. If interested, more information and registration can be found on the SharkFins website.
