Big Crowd Expected When Ohio Teams Face Off

Parking Sponsors Pledge to Limit Technology Distractions

August 23, 2016

Every year, all members of the freshman class are asked to read the same book as a way to provide a common learning experience, and learn to uphold the Bearcat Bond and Just Community Principles. The university calls this the Common Read, and it is supported by the Center for First Year Experience and Learning Communities.

Many freshman courses will use this book as a learning tool throughout the academic year. Parking Services is helping to promote awareness of this year's book, A Deadly Wandering, by Matt Richtel, by sponsoring the Pledge to Limit Technology Distractions, and additional efforts throughout the year. Nearly 400 students have signed the pledge so far.

A Deadly Wandering is a true life account of how a fatal texting-and-driving accident touched the lives of the driver, the families of the victims, law enforcement, and influenced distracted driving legislation. It also weaves in the neuroscience of how our brains are distracted by technology, and are not built to manage all of the multi-tasking that is a part of our culture.

The Pledge to Limit Technology Distractions (the Pledge) was introduced via a handout in welcome bags distributed at Convocation on Aug. 19. Students were asked to bring the signed Pledge to the MainStreet booth at Taste of Uptown on Aug. 21 for a chance to win a free semester of Parking. 

Common Read activities will be promoted via social media using the hashtag #LookUpUC. Stay tuned for additional updates about Parking Services' involvement throughout the year.

Pledge friends

The Pledge to Limit Technology Distractions reads:

I (name) pledge to limit my technology distractions while driving, walking and studying so I can focus my attention on engaging in relationships and activities that support my learning. I further pledge to uphold the Bearcat Bond and Just Community Principles.

Toys donate to pay for parking tickets

Exchange a Toy Donation for Your Parking Ticket - or Donate Even without a Ticket!

November 17, 2016

UC’s Parking Services is offering parking ticket pardons in exchange for new toys during the Toys for Tickets Campaign, Nov. 21-Dec. 9.

For the fifth year, University of Cincinnati students, faculty and staff are able to convert their parking tickets into the gift of giving. Toys for Tots, a top-rated national charity, provides toys, books and other gifts for less fortunate children in local communities. In collaboration with the Toys for Tots Foundation, UC’s Parking Services will be accepting Toys for Tickets donations on main campus.

How it works

Parking Services will dismiss any outstanding, on-campus parking tickets in exchange for Toys for Tots donations. To have your parking ticket dismissed, stop by the Parking Services office in 4 Edwards Center with your new toy donation along with the accompanying receipt.

The toy receipt must be equal to or greater than the total of your parking ticket(s).

Donations will be accepted Nov. 21 through Dec. 9.
