Thanksgiving Break

Make sure your room is in order before you start thinking about turkey!

For your safety and security, your room/house will be checked by the Residence Life staff and Security during break.

Note: This information is related to residential closing. Academic classes and coursework must be followed per the instructor for that class. If there are any conflicts, please contact your RA or the Office of Residence Life for accommodations. Residential closing does not excuse a student from missing class.
