NOTE- MBI Window and Pressure Washing– this weekend-  April 12/13.  The MBI will be having some exterior cleaning done in certain areas, involving window and pressure washing.  The windows being cleaned will include the stairwells, the conference rooms, and the front of the building (but not individual office windows at this time).  Some pressure washing will also take place around the break room / patio area and the back of the building. During the cleaning, certain entrances may be temporarily blocked off to prevent people from getting wet or hit by any incidental debris.  Weekend building access (with Gator 1 card) will remain active, but faculty, staff, and students might have to use a different entrance than normal due to the work being done.  Please excuse the mess until the work is completed. Thank you, Kelly Sharp, MBI.
