5. MVNU is not sponsoring a "cash only" mission trip to the Virgin Islands. So if your student tells you he/she needs $800 dollars cash, will be gone for a week and will be unreachable by phone, you may want to sit them down for a talk.
4. Residential students will need to fill out emergency housing forms and turn them in to the Director of Residence Life by March 13 if they need to stay on campus during the break (yes, there is an additional cost for emergency housing). As for everyone else, well, they donít have to go home... but they canít stay here.
3. If your son or daughter is planning on coming home for break, be prepared to deal with "campus jet lag." This is like typical jet lag, but unlike flying across 5 time zones, this can happen even when you live 5 minutes away from campus. Generally, students donít understand how people can wake up at 6 a.m. and go to bed at 10 p.m. Rather, they may be more comfortable going to bed at 6 a.m. and waking up at 10 a.m., with a 2-3 hour nap in the afternoon. There really isnít a cure for this "schedule shock" but we just wanted to give you a heads up.
2. Yes, students are still expected to live by the MVNU Lifestyle Guidelines while on spring break, whether it be at home or in Cancun.
1. Professors have this crazy idea that students will complete reading assignments, study and work on papers and projects over this 10-day break. So, while textbooks can take up valuable suitcase space, it might be a good idea for students to continue working, at least a little bit, over the break.
