Prepping for winter break

I trust you and your students had an enjoyable Thanksgiving and are looking forward to a much deserved break in the academic calendar. Fall final exams will end Wednesday, Dec. 21, marking the beginning of winter break.

If you haven't already, I encourage you to talk with your student about their final exam schedule to determine appropriate travel times to leave campus for winter break. Students are expected to vacate their residence halls within 24 hours after their last final exam. Most residence halls, except upper-class apartment-style housing, will close at 3 p.m. on the 22nd.

Residence halls will open at 9 a.m. Thursday, Jan. 12, and spring semester classes begin Tuesday, Jan. 17. 

I wish you and your family a happy and healthy holiday season. I look forward to seeing your students on campus next year, rested and ready for another fine semester!
