In the Midst of the 2013 Fall Quarter!

Although the days here at Santa Clara University remain sunny, the air has recently turned chilly and as one makes their way throughout campus, brown & yellow leaves are sure to crinkle underfoot. Not only are we in the midst of the Fall quarter here at SCU, but autumn has also made it's presence known on-campus! We just marked the end of Week 6 of the quarter with a myriad of Halloween celebrations throughout the various residence halls. Additionally, students are busily studying for mid-term exams and working to meet deadlines for various term papers & projects. With the quick pace of the quarter system, there is little doubt everyone is beginning to earnestly look forward to Thanksgiving break!

Within this month's Parent & Family Newsletter you'll learn more about the following topics:

  • Dining Meal Plan Change Requests for Winter 2014

  • 2013 Fall Extension Request Dates & Deadline 

  • 2014-2015 On-Campus Housing Information Sessions
  • Contract Cancellation Deadline (for graduating seniors, students transferring away from SCU, and students who are studying abroad in Winter 2014)

  • Thanksgiving Recess Information

  • Winter Break Dates & Information

  • Dining & Catering Services Promotions

Additionally, the Housing Office wishes our extended SCU family a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday filled with joy and quality time with family and friends!
