  SNOW DAY                            ^
    Final examinations and evaluations for the Fall semester
    will soon be here. Most will be held from December 9 to
    December 13.
    However, you may have noticed that December usually
    coincides with the beginning of Winter, and Winter can
    mean SNOW.
    It has been several years since a winter storm has
    hampered examinations /evaluations. But, should a
    winter storm cause closure of the College during the
    published examination/evaluation days, the
    examinations/evaluations scheduled on that day will be
    rescheduled to early January 1997.
    Grade reports will be mailed from the College before
    Christmas, and should be in your mailbox between
    Christmas and New Year’s. You should make sure the
    College has your correct mailing address.
