As reported in last week's Luminary, campus security had been turning away non-students, faculty or others with "official business on campus, leading to an outcry among area joggers and alumni.
Under the pilot plan, temporary day passes and dashboard cards will be issued by campus security that will be valid from sunrise to sunset. Runners are required to also check out with security. Weighill said that the plan gives the university confidence they can provide security to students and ensure the safety if those using the trails on a day pass. "If someone is hurt, we wouldn't want them out there alone," Weighill said.
More in tomorrow's Luminary. (Click through below to see the trail and to download a temporary pass form.)
