The college extended its effort to reduce skateboarders on campus after numerous complaints.

Besides the signs posted around campus, yellow warning pads were  installed  during winter break at different key locations, such as the  ends of the bridge between West and East campus—one of the most high traffic areas.

The purpose of the pads was originally to warn visually impaired people that they are entering high traffic areas.

Installing the pads cost the college approximately $18,000.

According to Erik Fricke, director of Campus Security, serious injuries related to skateboarding on campus have occurred.
