Dear Parents and Family Members:
With the Thanksgiving Break quickly approaching, we would like to take a moment to wish you a pleasant holiday.
For students living on campus, residence halls officially close at 6 p.m. on Tursday, November 24. West Campus Apartments, however, will remain open during the break. For more information, visit the Closing for Breaks and Checkout Process section of the Residence Life web page.
For students living both on and off campus, it is important that they remember they are leaving their residence for several days. They should prepare for that by discarding food items that may spoil, lock their residences, and bring with them items that could be vulnerable in unoccupied rooms. It is also a good opportunity to bring home summer attire and return with winter attire. If a student has a car, it is also a good time to stock some extra windshield wiper fluid and a snow brush and scraper.
If you have any suggestion/comments regarding the Family Page, please email comments to StudentAffairsOffice@cortland.edu
