Happy December!
Oh how time flies during the semester! December will be a quick month for us with only two weeks of classes and finals week. If you are unsure of when your finals are please check the schedule here.

Make sure that you are prepping well for your finals, and getting enough sleep in the process. There are many great resources on campus that you can utilize, feel free to check them out here.

Your RA will be hosting a meeting soon regarding closing information. Make sure you attend the meeting in order to get proper information on leaving for the semester. Also, if you would like to move, or are withdrawing this semester, please make an appointment with me to discuss the process!
As a reminder intensive quiet hours begin on Sunday December 14th to aid in a productive study atmosphere. Be sure to talk to your RA if you have any questions regarding this.

One last item to mention, as we enter into the colder months and there is snow on the ground, I would like to remind you all of the No Snow Throwing policy. Please do not throw snow or engage in any sort of snow ball fight. This behavior is against university policy. If you have any questions, you all received a student handbook in which you can consult for further information.

Best of luck on your finals, and I look forward to seeing you in 2015!
