Cornhuskin' 2010 Guidelines
Meredith College’s annual Cornhuskin’ tradition will take place on Friday, Nov. 5, 2010. Here are a few guidelines that will help make this a successful event.
Please be aware that at 3 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 5, 2010 the Main Campus Drive will be closed at Hillsborough Street to incoming and outgoing traffic. It will remain closed until after the Cornhuskin’ Parade participants have safely cleared the parade route. Entrance and exit to/from the Meredith Campus will be through the Faircloth gate.
In addition, the Chapel Parking Lot will be closed at 3 p.m. until after the parade. If faculty, staff or others park in the Chapel Lot on Friday, and need to leave early, these drivers will need to exit the lot BEFORE 3 p.m. Drivers may remain parked in the lot until after the parade, if they choose to do so.
PLEASE NOTE: THERE WILL BE NO PARKING ALLOWED ON FRIDAY ON EITHER SIDE OF MAIN CAMPUS DRIVE FROM THE TRAFFIC CIRCLE TO JOHNSON HALL.
•In order to ensure that there is enough seating room in the amphitheater for all students, Campus Police will allow guests through the gates in small groups between 5 p.m. and 6 p.m. They will pause entry through the gates at 6 p.m. in order to allow for class processionals, then will allow guests in as space permits after processionals are complete and before other events begin.
•No persons will be permitted to remain sitting or standing in the aisles or walkways of the amphitheater – this is a fire code violation and a safety concern.
•There will likely not be a seat for every guest within the amphitheater seating area. There will be bleachers set out above the amphitheater, which are available to anyone for first-come/first-served seating. Guests are also welcome to sit (in chairs, on blankets, etc.) on the hills on either side of the amphitheater (outside of the gated area) – this space is also first-come/first-served. Both options offer views of the amphitheater stage and are good options for seating outside of the crowded amphitheater.
•The following items are not permitted: chairs with legs, coolers or large bags.
•Blankets, seat cushions (with or without a back) and stadium seats (without legs) are permitted.
New!Seating availble in Jones Auditorium: Climate-controlled seating and a live video feed of the Cornhuskin' performances will be available in Jones Auditorium. Seating in the auditorium begins at 5 p.m.
