This list is not comprehensive. The Residence Life office reserves the right to ask students to remove items that are considered unsafe.
Microwave information: At this time, the only cooking appliance that a student may have in their room is a MicroFridge microwave. These refrigerator/freezer/microwave units are more functional and efficient than individual units. This is a great help for student rooms and energy conservation. All residents will be provided a MicroFridge per room.
The college assumes no responsibility for theft, damage or loss of money, valuables or personal items. It is essential that you protect your valuables. Please check with your family concerning the extent of coverage under existing insurance policies. You may also want to look for renter’s insurance from your own private agent or a company such as these National Student Services, Inc. or Progressive Insurance.
