The parking lots identified with a yellow star are $5 per space on Saturday, October 28 with all proceeds benefiting the PSC baseball team.  Golf carts will be available to provide assistance before and after the game.

Q:  I need special accommodations or have a food allergy, who do I tell?

A:  Tell the PSC Foundation!  Contact the Foundation at 402-872-2304 and let them know of any special accommodations needed.  Special parking, golf cart rides to locations and special meals are readily available throughout the weekend.

Q:  I’m participating in the parade as a reunion attendee or helping with the National Alumni Association float.  Where do we meet?

A:  You are encouraged to park in the Centennial Complex and meet off Park Avenue.  The Centennial Complex and float location are noted on this map with yellow and blue stars.

Q:  I’ve been told that I will be recognized on the field during halftime of the Bobcat football game.  Where do we meet and when?

A:  Plan to meet outside the Hospitality Suites on the Oak Bowl Main Concourse five minutes before halftime.  You will be escorted by Foundation staff to the field and cued when you will be recognized.

Q:  It’s going to be in the 40’s on Saturday, any changes in planning for the weather?

A:  We plan to move forward with all activities as planned on Saturday since rain is not forecast at this time, but dress warmly!  It’s perfect football weather and the delicious food and fun fellowship will keep us warm.  For the picnic, the main seating will be outdoors, but seating will be available in the Student Center as well.

Q: What is the PSC theatre production about and does it cost money?

A:  THE ARSONISTS is a relevant, absurdist comedy that asks us why we refuse to acknowledge warning signs. Is it because we’d prefer to believe that it can’t happen here? Do we keep our heads in the sand and think about something else because it makes our daily life a little easier? The Arsonists doesn’t make us feel comfortable, nor does it allow us to avoid the inevitable confrontation (and conflagration) Instead, the play asks us to explore questions of how such things happen while denying us answers. It demands that we try and figure the answers out for ourselves. So ask yourself: why does Biedermann open his door in the first place? Is it because he’s humane or only human?

Tickets are free for PSC students, faculty and staff.  $10 for general public, $5 students and seniors.
