Information about closing for the Semester Break

Check out the general information about leaving for the Semester Break here.  Information specific to your building is available from your RD, and was probably sent to your WCSU email (so take a look there!)


No place like WCSU for the holidays?

happy holidays logoNeed to stay on campus for the Intersession?  If you lived on campus for the Fall semester AND are living on campus in the spring, you may opt to stay on campus for the winter intersession.  The cost is $315/week, and meals are not provided (the meal plan is not in effect during intersession, although limited food service is available at the Daily Grind, Monday - Friday).  The only halls that are open are Pinney and Centennial.  If you do not live there currently,  you are responsible for finding a suite or apartment where the residents agree to allow you to stay over the break, and they must sign your application form granting permission.  We may be able to assist you if you don't know anyone, but you should work on that now if you think  you'll need to stay.

You must complete an application to stay, which is due to the Housing & Residence Life office by noon on December 13th.  Payment is due at that time as well, and must be paid at the Cashier's Office in Old Main or online.  The application form is HERE.


Cable TV information:

For a new list of the updated cable channels, please click on this link.

Your digital television must have a QAM tuner (Quadrature Amplitude Modulation) to work with the school’s cable service. The QAM tuner allows your TV to receive high definition cable programming without a cable set top box. Unfortunately, some less expensive TVs come with a low quality QAM tuner that may not be able to pick up all the digital channels. You should verify the specifications when you purchase your TV.

A NTSC (National Television System Committee) tuner is not compatible. This TV will require a digital-to-analog converter box to view television signals. (See information below to purchase a converter).

An ATSC (Advanced Television Systems Committee) tuner can receive digital signals but is not compatible with the school’s cable system.

Here is a link to an informal compatibility reference for newer devices. We cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information. You should verify the specifications when you purchase your TV.
