We’re off to Chicago, IL! Home of the deep dish pizza, Navy Pier and museums for every interest—and for a few days, the home of the Bulldogs! As part of their introduction to AC, the young Bulldogs are taken on a whirlwind excursion that lets the students explore the city and get to know each other. On Thursday, August 22, the Bulldogs will travel by bus to Chicago. Adrian College will provide lunch upon arrival to the hotel and breakfast the next morning. Dinner on the way back to Adrian will also be covered. Students are responsible for dinner on Thursday and lunch on Friday. Students, for the most part, are able to explore the city on their own—they are encouraged to bring money for souvenirs and activities. We will return to campus Friday, August 23.

All vehicles parked on campus must have a 2013-2014 permit by 11:59 pm on Sunday, September 1, 2013. Campus Safety will begin ticketing vehicles without a permit beginning on September 3, 2012.
Come to the Campus Safety Office in Caine Student Center (opposite the mailboxes) anytime after August 26 and bring your vehicle registration, student ID card and a valid driver’s license. The permit costs $200.00 for all residents and $200.00 for all commuters. This amount will be billed to your student account. Note: it is far cheaper to get your permit now. One ticket for “No Valid Permit” will cost you $30.00, and you will still need to purchase a $200.00 permit. Why pay the extra money?
Motor Vehicle Regulations
- All motor vehicles, possessed or used, on-campus must be registered every academic year. Parking on College property is a privilege, not a right. Vehicles should be registered at the Campus Safety Office. You must bring a valid driver’s license, student ID and vehicle registration (not proof of insurance). Any vehicle without a valid parking permit found in any lot where a valid permit is required will be ticketed and is also subject to being immobilized or towed at the vehicle owners expense (see Immobilizing and Towing). This includes, but is not restricted to, all unpaved or paved areas on campus where vehicles are NOT authorized to be driven (i.e., on any lawn or grassy area, sidewalks and walkways).
- A vehicle registered by a faculty or staff member, which is operated by a son, daughter or spouse of said faculty or staff member who is an eligible student driver must have and properly display a student permit. The operator of the vehicle must use the proper student parking lots.
- Students may register only one automobile.
Vehicle registration fee
- The student vehicle fee is $200.00 for the entire academic year.
- Commuters may park in the street or in the Merillat/Dawson lots for free until 11:00pm. Any commuter wishing to park in any other student lot or overnight must purchase a permit for $200.00. The permit is valid for the academic year.
- Permits are pro-rated for those registering their vehicles second semester. No refunds will be given to those leaving campus throughout the academic year.
- Adrian College does not assume responsibility for the care or protection of any vehicle or its contents while operated or parked on campus property. Vehicles should be locked when unattended and must be parked within the boundaries of a defined parking space.
Motor vehicle registration expires
- As indicated on permit (by academic year)
- When ownership of vehicle changes
- When the eligibility of motor vehicle privileges are revoked by disciplinary action
- If a registered vehicle is traded for another or a windshield is replaced, a new permit will be issued at $5.00 additional cost, provided the remnant of the older permit are presented at Campus Safety.
- The Adrian College window parking permit is to be completely affixed with its own adhesive and displayed at all times on the lower left corner of the back window (driver’s side). An expired permit must be removed before a new one is affixed. Permits must not be altered or defaced in any way. Tickets may be issued to vehicles displaying a permit incorrectly.
Student Employment Application Procedure
- An email will be sent from Campus Employment to ALL students with information regarding the process to apply for student employment opportunities during the 2013-2014 academic year. This communication will be sent via the students’ Adrian College email address. You can expect this email mid-August; it is the students’ responsibility to check their email account for this notification. That communication will include the deadline for submitting a job application (generally in the beginning of September). The email communication will also include a link to the online campus job portal. The job portal will include descriptions for available positions (including number of spots available, student application form and job supervisor information.
- ALL students (new and returning) will be required to fill out the online application for the job(s) they are interested in. There are required fields on the applications. If a required field is vacant, the application will be rejected by the system. It is the responsibility of the student to make sure all required fields are addressed and the application is successfully submitted.
- An acknowledgement email will be sent to the student once the application is successfully submitted. Students must retain proof of their submission. If there is no evidence that a student has submitted an application by the defined deadline, the student will be ineligible for a campus job for the semester. It is the students’ responsibility to provide evidence of submission (as described above).
- Once an application has been successfully submitted, the application will be forwarded to the appropriate supervisor. Supervisors will review the applications and may choose to interview candidates. It will be the supervisor’s responsibility to notify candidates if they are hired. If a candidate has not been contacted by the hiring supervisor by a pre-subscribed date, that candidate should assume that the position applied for has been filled.
- Application for a job does not guarantee a job. Students MUST NOT assume they have secured a position simply by applying for a job. It is recommended that students apply for more than one job. Many jobs require a certain skill set.
- Before a student can work, he/she must obtain a Blue Card from the Payroll Office. You will need to see Val Haracourt in the Payroll Office to fill out the forms necessary to get a Blue Card. It is the students’ responsibility to obtain a Blue Card prior to work and wage payment. Mrs. Haracourt is located in the Payroll Office in the Stanton Administration Building.
- Should you have any questions regarding Student Employment, please contact the Student Employment Director at email@example.com.

What do I bring to college?
The personal items you choose to bring will make your room your own unique place on campus. Some of the items you may wish to bring are listed below.
- Alarm clock
- Cleaning supplies
- Desk lamp
- Fused power strips
- Laundry supplies
- Mattress cover
- Twin regular-size sheets
- 3-way adapter
Who is my roommate? Can I select my roommate?
First year students are assigned to one of the freshman housing residence halls after receipt of their enrollment deposit and their completed Adrian College Residence Hall Room and Board Agreement.
Housing priority is based on the date the student’s payment is received, their preference of hall and roommate and the availability of rooms in the hall(s) they have requested.
Any specific roommate request must be mutual in order to ensure matching.
When do I register for classes?
First year students will register for classes during Welcome Week.
What type of computer should I buy?
Adrian College does not require students to bring a computer to campus, but many students find having access to one in their room a valuable piece of their academic life. Therefore, whichever type of computer a student would like to buy is their decision. Adrian College offered several computer labs throughout campus—even one that is open 24 hours in Caine Student Center.
Please note, all students agree to abide by the rules in the Computer Use Agreement.
