College strictly enforces their parking regulations
and will not hesitate to tow cars that might get in the way of emergency
vehicles or that are not in designated parking spaces. Please do not
park on the grass. We will give overnight guests a PARKING PASS
and will direct you to the appropriate parking lot. As long as you are
parked between white lines you should be okay. PLEASE
Read the signs.
¤ Please dance safely. The dance floor will
be snug at peak times such as Saturday night. There will be less crowded
times when your dancing could be more expressive, yet still safe.
¤ Please be sensitive to dancers with fragrance allergies
and refrain from wearing scented products such as perfume and cologne.
¤ If you bring children, you are responsible to make sure they
have adult supervision at all times.

We love them, but we have agreed with WWC that none of our dancers will

lock them out of sight in your car. You will have a card to get in and

¤ Please be aware
there ARE bears on campus - and we must not leave food out at any time.
If you do see a bear, raise your arms over your head and back up. North
Carolina bears are black bears and are not aggressive to humans, but
be cautious as with any wild animal.
