Intensive Study Hours

I hope you all had a wonderful Hot Dog Day and are ready to finish strong these last three weeks!  I am sending this announcement to inform you of the coming Intensive Study Hours that will begin this weekend on Sunday (4/30) and last until the end of the semester (May 13th).  Intensive Study Hours were implemented to make sure that the residence halls are quiet, so students are able to better focus on preparing for finals and completing final projects in the last two weeks.  The important information can be found below: 

  • Intensive Study Hours begin Sunday, April 30 at 8 PM and run until May 13th.
  • Intensive Study Hours do include the weekend.   
  • Intensive Study Hours are perpetual quiet hours with a relief period from 4pm- 7pm.  This means that regular hours are from 4-7pm each day and outside of that time period, quiet hours will be enforced. 
  • No guests in the building past 10 PM.
  • This announcement and the flyers around the building count as your warning. 
  • A first violation will result in the situation being documented, and you will receive a hand delivered letter that night that you have your first violation and that a second violation will result in relocation. 
  • A second violation will result in relocation from the residence hall and you will move into another spot on campus for the rest of the semester and you would not be allowed back into your regular residence hall until you are done with finals to grab any items you would need for back home/ return anything from your temporary assignment that you would not need to bring home over break.
