SPRING is in the AIR!

For those who live in colder climates, it may be difficult to believe we're experiencing 70 degree weather here at Santa Clara University! Spring is most certainly in the air! As Winter Quarter comes to a close (we're already at the end of Week 8) and students begin to look toward Finals and Spring Break, we hope the information and updates in this newsletter are helpful!

PARENT & FAMILY WEEKEND -  HOUSING PRESENTATION

For those parents and family members who were unable to join us for Parent & Family Weekend, or who couldn't make the Housing Information Session during the weekend, we have included the Housing presentation here. The presentation covered SCU on-campus housing accommodations, the benefits of living on-campus, overview of the Residential Learning Communities, housing policies, housing for study abroad students, and the housing application process for returning students. The housing application process is outlined in the previous story as well as on the SCU Housing website.

WINTER QUARTER FINAL EXAMS & SPRING BREAK!

Winter Quarter Final Exams begin on Monday, March 18th. During Finals Week, the Offices of Housing & Residence Life do expect all students within the residence halls to abide by 24 Hour Quiet Hours to foster and encourage a quiet environment during this exam preparation period. Spring Break begins on Saturday, March 23rd. Unlike Winter Break, the residence halls do not close during Spring Break and so residents are permitted to stay on-campus within their residence halls. We wish all students a safe, relaxing, and respite-filled Spring Break! 

Spring Quarter classes begin on Tuesday, April 2nd!

4TH ANNUAL ENERGY CHALLENGE

The Energy Challenge, which took place throughout the month of February, encouraged campus residents to examine their power usage and find ways to reduce wasted energy use. Rather than rivaling against one another, residence halls attempted to reduce their building's electricity consumption in comparison to historical use.
