Spring Break Closing Instructions

I can’t believe it is spring break already! The Office of Residence Life has asked that I share the Spring Break Closing Instructions with you. Feel free to contact your RA or RC if you have any questions.

Spring Break begins on Saturday, March 12, 2011 at 8:00am. At this time, the residence halls will close. The last meal served will be dinner 5:00pm to 7:00pm in Le Bistro and dinner will be the first meal served on Sunday, March 20, 2011.

No one will be allowed to remain in the residence areas after 8:00am on March 12. If you encounter problems with timing, transportation, or other concerns regarding closing for break, please contact the Office of Residence Life and Housing by Friday, March 11.

Before Leaving:

Defrost and unplug refrigerator

Unplug all electrical items, with the exception of fish tanks. Please label the cord to the fish tank.

Turn off lights and ceiling fans

Close and lock windows and leave shades/curtains open

Turn radiator down but not off

Remove any and all valuables

Thoroughly clean room and empty trash

Discard all perishables in your own room and/or the common area refrigerator; keep dry goods in a sealed container

Do not request that staff water your plants during break; they should survive if well watered and covered with a plastic bag

If you need to leave a vehicle on campus during break, make arrangements with Campus Safety. Secure bikes in bike racks.

Lock your room door

Residence Life Staff will be entering rooms to ensure that the above has been completed and rooms have been left in the appropriate condition for break. College staff may be making health and safety checks and doing routine maintenance and repair work in the residence halls during break.

Residence areas will re-open on Sunday March 20, 2011 at 8am. No one will be permitted in the residence areas before that time or at any time during Spring Break.

There will be a shuttle to and from the Lynchburg Airport and Amtrak Station. If you would like to use this service, you must sign-up in person by Friday, March 4 in the Chaplain’s Office. Sandidge Taxi can also be reached at 946-7873 for travel arrangements.

Thank you and have a great break!
