Cardboard box

April 21

In an effort to encourage students to clean their room and start organizing their items for moving out, the Residence Life Staff is setting aside April 21 as a cleaning and packing day. RAs will be around from 4pm-7pm in the lobby to help unstack beds and answer any questions students have regarding checkouts.

Details:

  • Between 4pm-7pm, the trunk room will be open during the first 10 minutes of each hour.
  • Packing boxes will be available at the desks, along with a variety of cleaning supplies.
  • Residents don’t HAVE to participate, and certainly will not FINISH their cleaning and packing if they do, but planning ahead helps take the stress out of exam week departures.
