ROOM DRAW PROCESS:

Please mark your calendars for Monday April 15 from 8-11pm.  Room draw will be a one night fun event this year!  We will start the festivities off at 8:00pm.  We will have the floor plans up on the big screen and students will come in and pick their room for next year.  We will have music, food, and drawings for some prizes, at this annual event.  The order of students picking will be based on class standing and number of credits earned.  For example: the person with the most credit hours earned living in Lourdes Commons next year will get the first pick and then it will go from there based on a ranked numbering system.  It will look something like this:

8-9 pm – Seniors (class standing next year)
9-10 pm – Juniors
10-11 pm – Sophomores

When you come in for your class standing time residence life staff will put you in order of credits earned.
