Parking Lot Closures Due To Large Commercial Film Production, March 22-29

March 19, 2018

  • News Image

On Thursday, March 22 beginning at 6 p.m., crews will begin arriving for a large commercial film production – taking place on campus through Wednesday, March 28. The series, The Perfectionists, is a spin-off of the hugely popular series Pretty Little Liars. 

Please keep in mind film shoots tend to be fluid as things come up during the course of shooting.

“The show’s creators approached the college after hearing about our campus’ beauty from a Portland-based location scout,” PR Director Roy Kaufmann said. “While we are excited to have a hand in this endeavor, we also want to acknowledge that the production will impact some offices’ day-to-day routines and will also impact parking for the first part of Spring Break week. A sincere thank you to all for being flexible and accommodating during this experience.”

Please consider alternate transportation on these busy days. Here are some suggestions:
  • Ride your bike to work
  • Carpool
  • Have a family member bring you to campus
