Leaving for Break
As you are packing, please double check that you have included valuables such as your wallet, keys, passport, airplane tickets, medication, and DeaconOneCard in your luggage.
Health & Safety Inspections
RAs will be inspecting all rooms between November 18-20.
There are several tasks that we ask that you complete prior to leaving for the break in order to help us secure the building, keep energy consumption down, and also keep the buildings in a sanitary condition over the break:
Please be aware that your room will be entered over the break. Office of Residence Life and Housing staff will inspect every room to ensure readiness for the break. Our inspection is generally confined to the main area of your room/apt/suite and the window area. Please be aware that any violations of policy that are observed will be documented and referred to the student conduct system.
To contact the Office of Family Engagement, please visit our contact page.
One of the best ways parents/families can help their students is to let them solve their own problems. Use the Stop, Drop, and Roll method when your student contacts you with a problem. The flyer also lists contact information for serious concerns where family intervention might be appropriate.
Select slide shows and handouts from Orientation sessions are available online.
