Let’s Skate

let's skate4



Student Body is sponsoring a skate night Friday night, Dec. 12, from 11:15 p.m. until 1:30 a.m. at the Pavilions in Greenville.  The cost is $15 (skates and transportation included).  There is still time (until noon Friday) to sign up at the Center for Leadership Development office in the student center.

Christmas vacation

Following chapel on Wednesday, Dec. 17, you are free to leave after your last exam and/or on-campus work obligation. If you have no exams on Wednesday, you may miss chapel on that day. Remember to fill out the DS-3 form if you will be missing chapel or any other required activity during exam week.

Because of airport check-in, flights should be planned for at least two hours after your last exam or work obligation.

Exam times cannot be changed in order for you to leave early.

Christmas break ends at 10 p.m. on Monday, Jan. 12. Opening exercises for second semester are on Tuesday, Jan. 13.


I hope you are looking forward to this year’s production of the Messiah.  Identical programs will be performed on Friday, Dec. 12, and Saturday, Dec. 13, at 7:30 p.m. in Rodeheaver Auditorium.  Tickets are not needed, and day students may attend either performance.

As a reminder, only those with no campus responsibilities may miss the Messiah  without prior approval. If you need to miss because of regularly scheduled work or outreach ministry, please submit a DE-2 form in time to secure approval for the absence in advance.

DS-3 form due Monday, Dec. 8

If you do not have final exams on a given day during exam week, you are not required to attend chapel (or the Student Body program on Tuesday).  However, you need to submit a DS-3 form by 10:30 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 8, in order to be excused.  The DS-2 semester exemption form will not excuse chapel absences during exam week.

Please note that if you have no exams on a particular day but the computer believes that you do have an exam, it will not let you choose “no exams” as a reason for missing chapel or the Student Body program.  Please choose “other” as your reason and explain why you do not have an exam as expected.
