Reminder- All APDPro requirements for the year must be completed by TODAY, May 7. 

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.
