As the semester draws to an end, it is time to prepare your on-campus housing for Semester Closing.  This not only includes packing up your personal belongings you need over break, but also fulfilling a your responsibilities as an on-campus resident:

The on-campus housing will close for winter break at 6:00 pm on Saturday, December 14th, 2013 and will not reopen until 10:00 am on Sunday, January 12th, 2013.  In order to properly check out of your on-campus housing, you must complete the following tasks:

  1. unplug everything in your room
  2. take out your trash and recycling
  3. defrost your refrigerator
  4. lock the windows and close the blinds
  5. set your heat to the required settings of your hall or area

For specific details on these tasks, please contact your hall staff or review a closing bulletin board.  Any and each of these steps that are not taken will result in a $10 fee.  Residence Life staff will be checking each room  to ensure that the halls are ready for a four weeks.  Please make sure to take everything you will need for the break period, as you will not be allowed to reenter the building once it has closed.  As a reminder, the residence halls will reopen Sunday, January 12th at 10:00 am.  Please go HERE for more details.

If you live in one of our on-campus apartments (Fair, Randolph, Campbell, or Patterson) and are interested in staying for all or part of Winter Break, please contact Kyler Carlson at with your name, banner ID, room number, and the dates you wish to stay.

Food Fast Fall 2013

Food Fast Fall 2013!

Monday, November 4th  - Friday, November 8th:

Don’t usually eat breakfast on Tuesdays? Can’t make it to lunch most Fridays? Take those extra meal blocks you’ve collected this semester and donate them to someone in need! Contribute to the United Way Campaign by donating meal blocks ($1.85 value), dining dollars or bonus bucks from your meal plan at any of the dining halls, campus convenience stores, online, or in your residence hall. At each cafeteria and convenience store, you can donate at the cashier station. Student staff will be coming around the halls all next week asking residents to donate. Every donation goes a long way to helping out others in Kirksville and Adair County. “Fast” from eating on campus for a few meals and make a big difference for someone else!

For those interested in donating meals online, you can do so at
