The Jule is free day or night for Clarke students with a current student ID.

The Jule stops at our new bus stop at 53 minutes after the hour M-F from 6 a.m. until 6 p.m., and on Saturdays from 8 a.m. 6 p.m.. The Night Rider runs on Friday and Saturday nights from 6 p.m. until 2:30 a.m. and stopping every half hour until 10:30 p.m. when it stops every 15 minutes.  Shortly after being picked up at Clarke you will arrive at a transfer point.  If you tell the friendly bus drivers where you want to go they will make sure that you get there. The Jule is a very convenient way to go to either to the west end or downtown.

Sculpture students upcycled computer boxes, found outside the Keller Computer Center, to create animal masks. Recycling this material allows students to work large and take risks without being concerned about costly mistakes. The resulting masks are lightweight and amazingly complex.

Joe Arms - Spotlight

Joe's recent addition to the Sustainability Committee this year provides a welcome student perspective about environmental issues related to the Clarke campus. In an attempt to save money on gas, and make a positive difference on the environment, Joe sold his car to his brother earlier this year. He admits that the winter will provide its challenges and is going to be a bit scary due to the inadequate bike lanes from his home to campus. In fact, Joe describes the trek as a combination of sidewalk and roadway exchanges on his daily commute, avoiding both pedestrians and absent-minded drivers. While there is limited bike rack space available on campus Joe finds the ride rewarding. His parking spot is better than most on campus.
