Thanksgiving Break


Students will be thankful to be at home with family and to see their friends from high school. However, they may be experiencing some stress due to preparation for upcoming Final Exams. Also, they may be thinking about moving out of their current residence at the end of the semester and moving in with their new best friend for Spring semester. Students may also mentions their interest in Greek Life. Formal recruitment for females and males will begin in mid-January. Students must have earned a minimum GPA of 2.5 to participation in the recruitment activity. However, some organizations require a higher GPA minimum.

Tip: Before making any kind of roommate change or residential hall change, have the student visit with the Residence Life staff to discuss option and alternatives. All moves and new room assignments for Spring semester are to be completed before Christmas break.
