SPRING TIPS FOR APPROPRIATE CONDUCT

T-shirts, sandals, and shorts are being spotted around campus. The arrival of Spring signals the winding down of the academic year. There are many reasons why the warm weather and end of the semester are welcomed, but there are some pitfalls that students and parents should be aware of.

THEY’RE ALMOST THERE

Students are counting down the days to the end of the semester, and families are beginning to make plans for their return home. Knowing the Spring 2014 exam schedule can help. Exams are scheduled to begin Monday May 5 beginning at 4:00 P.M. through Friday, May 9. Students should carefully review the final exam schedule to ensure they know the days and times for their exam.

FINAL EXAM CARE PACKAGE

With just a few weeks left, students are experiencing that final push toward the academic finish line. A great way to cheer your student on and to remind them that you’re thinking of them is with a “Fresh from Home” care package. These packages are perfect for finals week, especially when students miss a meal, has the late night munchies, or is burning the midnight oil. Use the order form or call 724-938-1602 to send a “Fresh from Home” package!

PACKING UP PREPS

Residence halls close Friday, May 9th at 8:00 P.M. However, students must be checked out within 24 hours of their last final exam unless they are participating in Commencement exercises during the weekend. You may be wondering how you’re going to get all your student’s belongings home! Perhaps you don’t need to. Local storage facilities can be the answer for housing those bulky items over the summer. Two or three students might consider sharing the space and splitting the costs, making it an even more affordable option. Local Storage Options
