Closing Time


As we look to closing out another year, below are some helpful tips to ensure a smooth and successful move-out and graduation day!

Residence Hall Move-Out

Before your student leaves for summer, students need to ensure they do the following to avoid additional fees:

  • Sign up for a check-out time with their RA
  • Remove all personal items from their room
  • Clean their room (this also includes common areas in apartment-style housing)
  • Meet with their RA to do a walk-through, return keys, and have a great summer!

Graduation

As you plan your graduation weekend, please keep these helpful tips in mind:

• Graduation is outside: there is minimal shade where the graduation ceremony takes place. Bring chairs, sunblock, hat, and plenty of water to avoid dehydration, fatigue, or discomfort.

• Park and walk: guests will be directed to park behind the Cage Center and walk to the ceremony location. If a member of your party needs assistance, please communicate to our Campus Safety officers directing traffic.

• Plan your time: give your family plenty of time to navigate campus before and after the ceremonies. There will be many people on campus celebrating their student, and traffic will be heavier than usual. If you plan to make reservations downtown, give yourself time to enjoy meeting your student’s friends and faculty as well as allow traffic to subside before your reservation time.
