Do You Know What Is Allowed In Our Residence Halls?
Looks like there's quite a few policies you missed. It's probably a good idea for you to become more familiar with our Res Hal policies or talk to one of our staff members.
It's a good idea for you to over that student handbook once or twice more - looks like there's a few areas you're a little unclear on. Our staff is here to answer any questions about what to bring or not bring into our residence halls.
This isn't too bad... but maybe check with our staff if you have any questions.
Look at you, knowing all these policies and what not. We couldn't be prouder. (P.S. RA applications open in November. Just sayin.)
