Winter Break preparation
All residence halls will close at 5pm TODAY for Winter Break! All students should be out by this time unless they have filled out the appropriate paperwork in the SPS Office.
Before you leave, please remember to:
- Remove everything from the top of and around your heating unit if you live in Ivy Hall or Alumni Court so that Maintenance can change your filter over break.
- Take out your trash
- Pull all of your belongings from the hallways/lounges into your room (including shoes, boots, rugs, etc)
- Unplug anything that could be a potential fire hazard (iron, curling iron, space heater, etc)
- Close and lock your windows; close your blinds
- Turn off your lights. Deadbolt your door
- Take home any valuables (laptops, expensive electronics, cash, etc)
Have a safe and restful break! Happy Holidays!!
