Updated: Spring Break Hall Closing

UPDATE 3-7-2011: Last week an e-mail was sent out by Residential Life regarding Spring
Break.  The message indicated there would be a $12 nightly charge for anyone staying in the residence halls over Spring Break.  There will be no extra nightly charge for breaks during a semester term.  These charges only apply to breaks between semester terms (i.e. Summer Break and Winter Break).  We are sorry for the confusion!

However, all other procedures and policies must be followed.  All resident students staying the in the residence halls during the extend break (Friday, March 11th at 4:00 p.m. to Sunday, March 20th at 1:00 p.m.) must be registered and comply with the modified visitation policy that was stated in the previous e-mailed. This process is to help ensure residents' safety and security.  Failure to register or violations of the modified visitation policy will result in a
disorderly conduct charge.

Please register by 4:00 p.m. on Wednesday, March 9th at the Residential Life Front Desk in Centennial Hall.  Please notify them if your plans change.

Thank you for your cooperation.
