Individuals are prohibited from skating or skate-boarding on the academic mall area and are prohibited from engaging in tricks (sliding, grinding, ramp building, jumps, etc.) anywhere on College grounds which involve any College property (i.e., roadways, stairs, steps, railings, benches, tables, entrances to buildings, etc.).
