Lost and Found

At the PIC we are the headquarters for the Universities "Lost and Found." If you find something just bring it to us and we will take care of contacting the owner. If you have lost something you can come by the PIC and someone will help you fill out a lost form with your information so that if it is turned in we can contact you.


To reserve a table for lunch time or a room for a meeting you should contact Roylene Read in Facilities. She will help you with everything and will make sure your needs are met.

Pay Checks

Pay checks are available at the PIC on the 15th of every month at 10 a.m. If the 15th falls on a weekend the checks will be distributed the Friday before the 15th at 10 a.m. For people with direct deposit you will also have a stub of how much was put into your account at the PIC. We will keep the checks for three business days and on the third day at 4 p.m. the checks will be mailed to the address that is on the check.

Parking Permits

Parking permits are available in the PIC. All you have to do is fill out the registration form and sign it so we have permission to bill the $40 fee to your student account. You do not have to pay for your permit when you receive it, you just fill out the registration form and we will bill your account. 

Movie Tickets

At the PIC we sell movie tickets at a reduced student rate for the Cornelius 9 Cinema as well as Regal Theater's in the area. These tickets are two for $11 but cannot be used for starred attractions or new releases unless they have been at the theater for 14 days. If you wish to purchase these tickets and want to use them for a starred attraction or new release you may have to pay an additional fee at the ticket window.


In the PIC we have a Fax machine that is accessible to students. You may have a fax sent out for 50 cents a page (the cover page is free). Please feel free to stop by the PIC and someone will take care of your faxing needs.
