The work will require lane restrictions that will change from day to day. It is important to follow posted construction speed limits and pay attention to traffic control changes. Turn movements at the intersection may be restricted during this process.

Traffic will be more congested than normal during peak times. Please stay courteous, obey all traffic signage and leave extra time on your commute to and from the campus.

Please join us next week, on Friday, October 31, 2014 from 12:00 p.m. – 1:00 p.m. in Cougar, to hear our special luncheon guest speaker, Dr. Thomas Curtin.

Thomas Curtin, MD, served as Chief Clinical Officer for the National Association of Community Health Centers (NACHC), for seventeen years.  NACHC represents the nation’s dominate health care provider; the national safety-net of 1,300 community-based organizations serving twenty-three-million individuals through nine-thousand clinics.

After graduating from Michigan State, Dr. Curtin accepted a NHSC position in a rural northern Michigan CHC, where he eventually served as Medical Director, then Executive Director.  He became a Board member for his Health Center while serving as the National Association’s clinical leader.

From his position at NACHC, Dr. Curtin helped forge the partnerships we call ASDOH & SOMA.  Having retired from NACHC, Dr. Curtin has been drawn back to Health Centers and again serves as the Medical Director of his community’s CHC.


Come for the inspiration brought by Dr. Curtin’s practical and frank approach to healing and leadership!

Lunch will be provided.  If you plan to attend, please RSVP to Rosemary Jones at

Have you lost sunglasses, lunch bag, water bottle, coffee mug, sweatshirt, sweater, books?  ATSU lost and found is at the front desk of the main building (5850).

Items that have been in lost and found over one month will be donated to Goodwill.


On Saturday, October 25th the landscapers will be scalping the lawns in the morning in preparation for seeding the winter lawn.  This process causes flying dust and grass clippings, so if you are on campus Saturday you may want to park your car away from the lawn areas.

The grass will need extensive watering during the first few weeks.

Please exercise caution as some areas of the sidewalks may be slippery.

Those who park on Sunview and Inverness we ask that you do not walk on the south grass until the lawn is established (3 weeks).

The ASDA Community Service Committee is collecting donations for Operation Christmas Child during the month of October. Look for donation boxes located around campus and consider donating for a child in need. We are collecting toys, school supplies, clothes, accessories, and hygiene items. 

Whether affected by war, poverty, disease, or natural disasters, a simple gift this holiday season can truly make a difference in the life of a child. Millions of children around the world will receive gifts this year through Operation Christmas Child, bringing them joy and showing them compassion. Lets show them ATSU cares.
