Fall Break 2014

 

Fall Break is quickly approaching (October 10th-14th).  Shenandoah University encourages students to take advantage of this opportunity to spend this time with friends and family. 

The residence halls will CLOSE promptly at 7:00 p.m. on Friday, October 10th and OPEN again Tuesday, October 14th, at 12:00 noon.

Before you leave for break please make sure to do the following:

 

  • Close and lock your windows and doors
  • Leave blinds and curtains open (except first floor residents and all of ERV & ECC)
  • Empty all trash from your room
  • Turn off lights and other electronics (computers, televisions, etc)  
  • Leave your fridge plugged in, but throw away all perishable food items                        
  • Retrieve any confiscated items (such as candles) from the RA office (please remember they are only held until the first break) to take home
  • All ERV, ECC, RLC, UI and Parker rooms MUST leave their heat/AC unit turned on to keep the room temperature regulated (72 degrees is a good temperature)

**Please remember that students will be documented for violating health and safety policies if they leave their room excessively dirty or trash in the room over break.

If you are requesting approval to stay in the residence halls at any time during Fall Break, please contact the Department of Residence Life no later than Wednesday, October 1 at 5pm. Please read carefully as this has changed this year.

 

Students who are unable to find other housing and need to remain on campus MUST do the following: 

(1)  Fill out a Student Account Authorization Form (no later than Wednesday, October 1 at 5pm) in Residence Life (Cooley 216), which will charge your student account a $25 flat for staying on campus Friday-Monday nights

(2)  Pay the $25 fee on your WebAdvisor account or in person in Hornet Central prior to October 10

Students who are required to be on campus for classes, student teaching, or athletic practices or games over the break are exempt from the fee. However, if you fall into one of these exempt categories, the Department of Residence Life will need confirmation from a faculty member or supervisor. Residence Life will contact all athletic coaches for their lists.

Residence Life will run two shuttles each way (for residential students) to Dulles Airport and Vienna train station for students who need transportation.
