Athletics Adjusts for Dalai Lama Visit
Oct. 19, 2010
OXFORD, Ohio -- It won't be business as usual for the Miami Athletic Department this week. Most of the department -- those based in Millett Hall -- face an alternate work schedule on Thursday because of the Dalai Lama's visit to campus.
Millett Hall will close at 8:30 p.m. on Wednesday. On Thursday, doors will open at noon for those holding tickets to the Dalai Lama's address in the arena. Heavy security measures will be in place throughout the afternoon, ending approximately 4 p.m. Millett Hall employees will not be able to gain access to their offices until 11 a.m. Thursday.
As such, the Miami Athletic Ticket Office will relocate to the box office at Goggin Ice Arena for its normal hours, 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Ticket Office phones will be answered as usual from the satellite location. Most employees will spend the day working at alternate locations, so cell phones and email will be the best way for customers to reach them.
Response times may be a bit slower Thursday and Miami Athletics appreciates your patience in making the Dalai Lama's visit a safe one.
