Residence Hall Life
You will be given daily responsibilities to make sure your room stays clean and comfortable. Inspections will be conducted at the following times:
Mon., Tues., Thurs., and Fri. (10 am)
(trash emptied, beds made, clutter removed, and bathroom sink and toilet cleaned)
Friday (11 pm)
(shower, mirrors, and room and bathroom floors cleaned)
Sunday (9:15 am)
(beds made and clutter removed)
A trash chute for all disposable items smaller than a shoe box is on each floor at the end of the hall. Larger cardboard boxes should be broken down and placed in designated locations in each building. Since styrofoam pellets will blow away when the dumpster is emptied, place them in a container before disposing of them.
Those who have chronic difficulty with room cleanliness will be subject to fines.
Daily Residence Hall Schedule
To decrease congestion on campus and allow for prompt arrival at required events, students must be out of the residence halls by the following times:
- Chapel/meetings Mon.–Fri. 9:55 a.m.
- Morning services Sun. 8:55 a.m.
- Evening service Sun. 5:40 p.m.
- Mid-week service Wed. 6:40 p.m.
- 20 minutes prior to other campus-wide activities
Return to your own residence hall by 10:25 p.m. Those who have chronic difficulty leaving/returning to their residence halls on time, will be subject to fines. Students returning to their residence halls after 11:00 p.m. without authorization will incur a $15 fine each time.
Residence hall activities should be carried out quietly Monday–Thursday between 7 and 9:30 p.m. as a courtesy to those studying.
Prayer Group/Hall Meeting
Prayer Group is led by an assigned Prayer Leader (PL) or Assistant Prayer Leader (APL) on Mon., Tues., and Thurs. at 10:30 p.m. On occasional Thursdays, RAs will give announcements and a short devotional during Hall Meeting in place of Prayer Group. To make this time of prayer and spiritual encouragement meaningful, do not bring items such as food, drink, or electronic devices.
Beginning at 11 p.m. Sun.–Thurs. and midnight Fri.–Sat., you must remain in your room with the main room lights off. Activities should be carried out quietly so that others may sleep. Only those with early morning work responsibilities should leave their room prior to 5:30 a.m.
Late-Night Study Hall
This study hall meets Mon.–Thurs. and is a privilege for seniors and students twenty-one and older. Plan to arrive by 11 p.m. and stay until 11:45 p.m. Locations are listed on residence hall bulletin boards.
