Students off-campus Spring 2015:

The end of this semester is coming up fast. It is necessary for you to return your studio key and check out of your studio desk before the end of the semester. If you purchased your white desk top, you may want to store it in our closet. If it is our desk top, please leave it on the desk. After you have removed your personal belongings from the desk completely, contact Jody so that she may check you out at your desk. You will return your studio key at that time as well.


End of semester studio clean up:

1)  Be sure that all trash and recyclables are in the appropriate containers before you leave for winter break.

2)  Remove everything hanging from the wire trays (except for drop down electrical outlets) and remove all paper from windows.
