All registrations are due by Friday, November 17, 2017 at 4:30pm.

If you are leaving campus during Thanksgiving Break, please remember to:

  • Close your windows and draw your shades if in a first-floor room. 
  • Unplug all appliances including your alarm clocks.  Your refrigerator may remain plugged in.
  • Empty trash in your room.
  • Remove/store all perishable food that roaches or other pests could get to.
  • Turn off all lights and lock your door behind you.
