** Remember that agricultural roads (like Lewis Road and Cawelti Road) have a speed limit of 50 mph. **
As you drive into the campus from the entrance on Lewis Road, make sure that you obey the speed limit of 35 mph (the police are vigilant defenders of this limit due to several collisions vehicles have had with deer).
