We’re just a couple of days away from the start of Fall Break, and the general urge to vacate campus seems to be growing with every passing moment. However, lots of grad students tend to stay in the area during the break because of work and family obligations, and we wanted to let you know what will and will not be open on campus during the long weekend.
First of all, our office will be open with normal hours (8:30-5:00) on Monday and Tuesday. Feel free to stop by and pay us a visit if you have any questions at all about the Graduate School. We’ll be here ready to dispense advice about the application process, talk to you about our programs, and answer any academic policy or registration questions you may have. In case you didn’t know, we’re located in Suite 310 of Randolph Hall.
The Addlestone Library will be closed on Saturday and Sunday, but will be open from 7:30 A.M. to 6:00 P.M. on Monday, and 7:30 A.M.-2:00 A.M. on Tuesday. So if you need any books to work on class projects over the weekend, you should get them soon!
Also important to note for hungry graduate students: Dining Services will operate with reduced hours over the break. The Stern Center Food Court, The Hungry Cougar, Einstein Bros. Bagels, and Java City will all be closed from Saturday-Monday. Market 159 and The Liberty St. Fresh Food Company will remain open, but with less hours than normal. To view the complete details, check the Dining Services site.
Most professors will be just as ready to jet out of here as the students, so you probably shouldn’t expect to be able to meet with them during Fall Break either. If you have a specific question about the availability of a particular professor or program director, you should e-mail them directly to inquire about their availability over Fall Break.
Students enrolled in joint programs with The Citadel should remember that any classes you are taking at The Citadel operate on a different schedule, so you will need to attend those classes on Monday and Tuesday unless your professor has explicitly canceled them. Academic departments and resources at The Citadel, including the Daniel Library, will be open as normal during College of Charleston’s Fall Break.
As always, feel free to e-mail us if you have any questions about The Graduate School or life on campus in general. From all of us at the Graduate School Office, we wish you a safe and restful Fall Break!
