COOL DOWN AT CASTLE PARK

Buccaneer Cove is the newest attraction at Castle Park, a local fun center. The Cove features water cannons, umbrellas, rings and is replete with multiple fountains. This water playground includes five large and very colorful slides. Any student smaller than 36 inches will not be able to ride the slides but can still play in all the other water features.

Castle Park is open 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Monday through Friday and 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays.

HEALTH CENTER

The new Health Center is open Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Do not forget to bring your student ID, insurance and any health information that might be helpful, when making a visit.

There are several things that you can do to avoid having to visit this site, said Health Center Nurse Practitioner Melisa Cristensen: “Wash your hands. Drink lots of water, two to three liters a day, and stay away from sick people. When

someone is coughing or sneezing you really do not want to be close to them or touch things they have touched.”

THE DONUT SHOP

Number 2’s is still No. 1.

At the old American Donuts Number 2’s location in Adams Plaza, two signs hang: one with a deep-fried donut and one that says, “COMING SOON.”

The donut shop will reopen in a new location, due to Adams Plaza reconstruction. The new location, on the corner of Arlington Ave. and Magnolia Ave., is not that far away from its former locale.

WANDA

Welcoming students into the Academic Dining Commons for many years, Wanda Price was a wonderful smiling fixture on this campus. Sadly, in early spring, Wanda fell and broke her hip. She has not been able to return to California Baptist University.

“She gave more years of service than I guess anyone here, and it is sad to not have her around,” Art Cleveland, the interim vice president of institutional advancement, said.
