Many of you are currently making arrangements for staffing for fall opening. Some offices will need to bring their student workers back early to support opening operations.
"Early arrivals" are any students whom you will require to arrive on campus prior to the regular check-in dates of August 21-22. Please include only the names of those students whose early arrival is necessary for the operation of your department during fall opening and who are on-campus residents.
I have listed below the guidelines our office uses when processing early arrival requests. Please review them as you begin to plan.
We encourage you to provide meal arrangements for any employees you are bringing back early. If your department wishes to make meal plan arrangements, please contact the Office of Conference and Event Services. Otherwise please notify your students that they can purchase an individual meal plan through the Office of Conference and Event Services. Students who do not have special arrangements cannot eat in the dining hall until brunch on Saturday, August 21.
