New sandwich shop to open in mall

The Old Capitol Town Center will see a new sandwich operation soon.

Wisconsin-based Erbert and Gerbert’s will open a store later this year, likely in April or May, a corporate official confirmed.

The mall previously had a Quiznos, which closed in December 2014.

The location will be the first in Iowa among over 50 nationwide, primarily in the Midwest.

Hawk Alert test today

The University of Iowa Department of Public Safety will test its Hawk Alert system at 10 a.m. today.

Job fair coming soon

Around 160 organizations will attend an upcoming job fair.

The event will take place in the IMU Main Lounge from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The goal is now to raise $35 million by 2016.

Initiatives the fundraising supports include scholarships and the Belin-Blank Honors Center.
