  • The ongoing construction of the new Bureau of Geology building will necessitate the closure of the sidewalk along Bullock Avenue during working hours. This will remain through the summer. The construction crew will block the areas when they arrive to work and remove them when they finish for the day. The construction crew will also post signs to direct pedestrians to go around to the north side of Bullock keeping them away from the construction area.  This project is scheduled to be completed by spring 2015.

  • What can you do with your empty printer and copier ink cartridges, and the cell phones you're no longer using? Put them in a collection box for the Rotary Club of Socorro. This project is partly community service, to keep the cartridges and phones out of the landfill, and partly an effort to raise funds for Rotary's local, national, and international projects. You will find collection boxes on campus in the Fidel Center, Human Resources, NRAO, MRO, and the Bureau of Geology. You will also see them at various locations around Socorro. Rotary thanks you for your help!
