Quiet hours are established to assist in creating a positive academic atmosphere in the residence hall during the evening hours. Because study and proper sleep are essential for success, quiet hours are a necessary part of community life. This policy also encourages a sense of community responsibility in being considerate of one another's needs.
Quiet hours are in effect Sunday - Thursday, 10 p.m. - 8 a.m. and Friday - Saturday, 12 a.m. - 10 a.m. During this time noise from one room should not be heard in a neighbor's room. Stereos should be kept at a minimum or be listened to through headphones. Noise in the hallways should also cease and video games should be played quietly or without sound. Repeated offenses may result in a fine, the loss of stereo speakers, video game equipment, or the privilege of having guests in their room of either gender for a specified period of time.
