October 2017 Parent & Families Update

It’s truly turning Fall in Winston-Salem, and with that it means we are quickly looking towards the end of the Fall Semester, Winter Break, and the beginning of the Spring Semester. Below are a few important reminders from Residence Life and Housing:

Thanksgiving Break – 

November 22-26, 2017

  • Residence halls remain OPEN during this break, however, all rooms will be inspected on Tuesday, November 21 to ensure health & safety.
  • Check deacondining.com well in advance of break to see holiday hours and dining venue availability (and plan accordingly).
  • Thanksgiving break provides a great opportunity for students to change out seasonal apparel or other items no longer needed.
  • As your students prepare to travel, remind them to take passports and valuables with them, secure bikes in bike racks, and lock their rooms.
