And finally, you may have noticed that Kenmore Avenue has been closed between Fullerton and Belden. Although current students may have had to deal with parking headaches because of it, DePaul’s Campus Recreation is using it as a reason to celebrate. This Friday, May 4th from 3-6 pm, Campus Recreation will be holding a Block Party at Kenmore and Belden, with free food, music, games, bike wash and tire fill station, and more. Open to students, faculty, staff, alumni, and the greater DePaul community.
