Parent Email, Sent March 29, 2018
Dear Parents & Families,
The calendar says Spring is here! Even though the weather in Delhi has yet to cooperate, the days are getting longer and we continue to make the best of it.
We would like to take an opportunity to share some information with you regarding upcoming events and campus deadlines. Always refer to the College Calendar for key dates and academic deadlines.
Deadline for Housing Deposits & Contracts for 2018-19
If your student is planning to live on campus or at Riverview Townhouses during the 2018-2019 academic year, they are required to pay a $100 housing deposit at the Student Accounts Office in Bush Hall or through Bronco Web. Housing deposits are due on Friday, April 6. Following this, students will need to complete an online housing contract on the Housing Portal (Student Housing Management System) by Monday, April 9.
Currently enrolled students will select their own room and roommate(s). More information on this process is available online. Students living off campus who wish to move on campus may visit the Residence Life Office in 111 Catskill Hall for assistance.
Students currently living on campus who would like to move off campus next year must get permission to do so. Requirements to live off campus and forms to request to move off campus are available online.
All Residence Halls close for Spring Break Saturday, April 7 at 10 a.m. and reopen Sunday, April 15 at 12 noon. Classes resume on Monday April 16.
Commencement will take place Saturday, May 19 at 10 a.m. at the College Track. If the weather cooperates and the ceremony does take place outside, no tickets are required and there are no limits on guests.
In the event of inclement weather, the ceremony will take place inside in the Maines Arena of Clark Field House. Graduating students will receive three indoor guest tickets when they pick up their caps and gowns from the Barnes & Noble Bookstore. Any additional guests may view the ceremony through a live-feed at another location on campus. For more information about graduation requirements for your student visit the Commencement webpage. Directions to campus and lodging accommodations can be found at the About the Area webpage.
Career Development Services
Is your student looking for a job or internship opportunity? Encourage them to use Optimal Resume to create professional looking resumes and cover letters. Ask if they are registered with College Central Network, where employers post job and internship opportunities directly to SUNY Delhi students. All these services are available to current students and alumni. To find more information, please visit the Career Development webpage.
Summer & Fall 2018 Class Schedule
Class offerings and information are available for review on the Registrar’s webpage. Students are encouraged to visit with their advisor to discuss course selections for next semester.
Scholarship applications are being accepted for 2018-19. We encourage all students to complete a FAFSA to be considered for scholarships that require documented financial need; we also encourage students to complete an essay. The application process is an online process and for most scholarships it is not necessary to apply for a specific named scholarship. Click here for information and the scholarship application.
The Campus Voice
Be sure to check out the news and information shared in our student newspaper, The Campus Voice. The most recent Mid-Spring Issue features SUNY Philanthropy Day, students going abroad, bystander intervention strategies, pictures from the Saint Patrick’s Day parade, and so much more. The link takes you to our new Student Engagement Platform called Bronco Connect, and then you can download the issues from this semester.
