In a massive show of force, UCR students scoured hillsides and arroyos to collect a trailer load of trash. Over seventy five participants from numerous fraternities.collaborated with the University Neighborhood and Friends Of Riverside’s Hills to reinvigorate Watkins Drive, Gateway to the University Neighborhood.
The morning’s haul included a well used triple recliner couch minus remote, nine tires, a bumper with plate plus thirty five bags of assorted trash. These guys climbed hills and scampered down into arroyos to retrieve the bounty.
In a straw poll at the end, students indicated an interest in a potential collaboration to help build the new C Trail in the Box Springs Mountains. It seems like a perfect legacy project for students, alumnae association and the UCR Foundation.
This batch of trash can be appreciated for a short time only. City crews will find this easily accessible at this location.
Discount Uber rides, free concerts, bike-sharing and an unlimited supply of Red Bull are among the offerings designed to attract the 20 million plus college students looking to afford living in these perked up pads.

CAMPUS WORKSHOP #1 (DAY)
(doors open at 12:15 p.m.)
Winston Chung Hall 205/206
Lunch and free 3-hour parking included for those who register
Nothing to worry about if you happen to see hundreds of emergency personnel on campus this Wednesday.
To the Campus Community,
As part of UCR’s ongoing emergency preparations, the campus has invited more than one hundred emergency responders to come take a tour of the campus on Wednesday, Dec. 17, focusing on the labs and steam plant. Emergency vehicles will be parked in Lot 6. We are trying to share this notice widely to avoid someone mistaking numerous emergency vehicles for a crisis.
“This is important work and part of our ability to communicate efficiently with each other if there is an emergency,” said Russell Vernon, director of UCR’s Office of Environmental Health and Safety.
Representatives of Riverside County Fire, Riverside Police, Riverside County Sheriff’s Department and several other fire agencies will be touring labs, the steam plant, and other areas of campus that might be critically important to an emergency response during an earthquake or other natural disaster. The tour and workshop lasts from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Join us for a cool evening stroll! Tours begin at 7:00 PM and will last until around 8:30 PM, followed by dessert/refreshments on the patio.
We will be hosting two Twilight Tours this summer:
—July 25th —August 15th
Tours begin at 7:00 PM and will last until around 8:30 PM, followed by dessert/refreshments on the patio.
A follow-up message will be sent with additional details and RSVP information.
If you have never been in the Botanic Gardens come nightfall, you are encouraged to attend this event. It is unbelievably serene and mysterious in the evening, and always a relief from the heat of the day. The tours are led by our docents.
Riverside can win this if we all continue plugging in our monthly energy and gas use data! All funding received will go to making Riverside a more sustainable place!
The CoolCalifornia Challenge Riverside Team
The UC System launched a Global Food Initiative and UCR will be one of the leaders in that initiative!
“The University of California will broaden its study of sustainable agriculture, food policy and nutrition around the world as part of a new initiative to better feed a hungry world, President Janet Napolitano announced Tuesday.”
Fit, Fresh, Fun Update:
RUSD, AUSD, City of Riverside, and County of Riverside Partnered up for FEEDS Program and the Kick-off Riverside Summerfest. We are serving healthy nutritional meals to all Riverside kids during the summer to promote health eating and help eliminate hunger.
The University Neighborhood and Friends of Riverside’s Hills partnered with Pi Kappa Alpha to clean up piles of illegal dumping along the trail beginning at the Riverside Stem Academy.
Fifteen tires, bed springs, couches, a camper shell and assorted construction debris illegally dumped were pulled from the trees and piled for pick up.
Keep Riverside Clean and Beautiful provided tools, safety gear and water. Fresh Doughnuts on Blaine supplied five dozen doughnuts, Letitia Pepper made up gallons of fresh, organic lemonade and Frances Posoisky prepared chicken salad and roasted vegetable wraps. Jamil Entrikin of Starbucks Coffee at Canyon Crest supplied iced coffee to help amp up the twenty Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity brothers, some of whom were running on only a few short hours of sleep. Thanks to the neighbors who contributed for the snacks.
That’s what I call living in the neighborhood of our dreams.
