Common Referenced Policies
Below is a list of policies students commonly ask about during the housing process. Students are responsible for knowing and adhering to all the policies listed in the student handbook. For a complete listing of our policies, please view The Citizen.
Alcohol & Drug Policy
Members of the college community are subject to all state, county and municipal laws/ordinances regulating the sale and use of alcoholic beverages and illegal substances, as well as college regulations pertaining to the same.
Smoking & Tobacco Use Policy
The use of smoking or chewing tobacco products are prohibited inside of and within seven feet of 12 smoking urns placed around campus. Please be aware of the smoking policy and the location of these urns. Tobacco products are not sold through any college outlet.
Courtesy hours are observed 24-hours a day, seven days a week, in all residence halls. Courtesy hours require that residents are considerate of others living in their community and will maintain a reasonable level of quiet. Quiet hours require that residents or visitors must ensure that their noise level does not disturb other residents. These times may be changed at the discretion of the director of residential education and housing.
Specific quiet hours are observed during these times:
- Sunday-Thursday, 10 p.m.-9 a.m.
- Friday-Saturday, Midnight-9 a.m.
Visitation is a privilege granted to students in residence halls who agree to supervise and regulate themselves and their guests. Residents should escort their guests while in the hall at all times. The hours of visitation are established to provide privacy for residents within each floor/wing community. The responsibility for the effectiveness of this policy lies in the hands of each resident, the Hall Council in each hall and Residential Education & Housing staff (REH) members.
Students are expected to know the visitation policy set forth by REH. If a resident is having any non-SNC student visit, they must submit a guest request form at least 24 hours in advance and by noon on Friday for weekend visits. The guest request form needs to be completed and submitted to any REH staff member (resident assistant, hall director or the REH Office).
Specific visitation hours are as follows:
- Sunday-Thursday, 9 a.m.-Midnight
- Friday-Saturday, 9 a.m.-2 a.m.
Only fish are permitted in the residence halls. “Visiting” pets are also prohibited. Fish tanks may not be larger than 20 gallons. Service animals wearing harnesses and under the control of their owners shall be exempt from these provisions.
