Residence Hall Life
A full night’s sleep is a substantial factor in achieving academic success and enjoying college life. For that reason, students may not be up prior to 5:30 a.m., except for those who have work responsibilities (on or off campus) that require their getting up earlier.
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. 9 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.
Always respect the rights and needs of fellow students. Be especially attentive to noise levels and maintain an atmosphere that is conducive to study Mon. through Thurs. from 7 to 9:30 p.m.
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.
To maintain an environment conducive for sleep or study, activities should be carried out quietly at night. Beginning at 11 p.m. Sun.–Thurs. and midnight Fri.–Sat. the main lights should be off and students must remain in their own room until 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., stay until 11:45 p.m., and be in bed by 12 midnight. Locations are listed on residence hall bulletin boards.
