What's going to happen next year?
Where will your classes be? 
All students who will be enrolled in the MRCP or MLA programs are invited to come to a Move Meeting, have some pizza and find out about the plans for next year:
  • Friday, May 1 - RCP Student and Faculty Move Meeting, Seaton 106c, pizza and information about next year, noon - 1 pm
  • Monday, May 4 - LA Student and Faculty Move Meeting, Seaton 106c, pizza and information about next year, noon - 1 pm
Checking out of Studio:
It is hard to believe that the time to move out of studios is quickly approaching. Due to the Seaton Hall construction project, you will need to remove ALL personal items. 

Please follow the below list:
  • Remove all personal items - Any personal items left behind, including mini-fridges and microwaves, will be discarded. 
  • Leave the white plastic tops on the desks. 
  • Throw out any trash and recycle any recyclables. 
  • Return all of your university keys to Jody by the end of the day May 15.

Please remember that returning students must return their studio and Edmond's Center keys to receive keys to next year's departmental spaces and graduating students must do the same to receive their diploma.
