To-Do List Before Departing Campus

Clipboard with a notebook paper that has black chalk writing that says "To Do List" and a green-colored check underneath the writing.

To ensure that your room/suite is ready for the winter break, here's what you need to do:

  1. Unplug ALL electronic items (e.g. refrigerators, computers, alarm clocks, and among others);
  2. Keep refrigerator doors OPEN with a towel underneath it;
  3. Dispose of ALL perishable foods (to avoid having mice come for a visit);
    If residence hall staff find food in your room, we will dispose of them immediately.
  4. Empty your trash cans;
  5. Open your blinds;
  6. Close ALL windows;
  7. Lock up your valuables in your closets; and finally,
  8. Set your HVAC units on LOW.
