It may still feel like winter, but spring break is almost here! The last day for all classes will be Thursday, March 5, and exam day for first half semester courses will be on Friday, March 6. Break begins at the end of the day on Friday, and campus housing halls will close at noon on Saturday, Match 7. Food services in Stockdale will serve breakfast Saturday morning before shutting down for break; they will resume with dinner on Sunday, March 15. Housing will re-open at noon on Sunday, March 15, for students to return.
For those needing a ride to the train station or airport, the school offers shuttle services.
The shuttle will leave The Huff Thursday, March 5, at 5:30pm to take students to the Galesburg Amtrak Station and will pick up returning students from the station at 5:45 pm on Sunday, March 15. There is a $15 fee each way that will be billed to your student account, and the last day to sign up for a shuttle reservation is Friday, February 28.
The shuttles taking students to the Moline and Peoria airports will depart from Stockdale on Friday, March 6, at 7am and noon. Returning students will be picked up at the airports on Sunday, March 15, at noon and 7 pm. The fee for these shuttles is $40 each way, and the deadline to sign up for a reservation is Friday, February 28.
Make sure you purchase plane and train tickets in advance that will allow you to make the pick-up and drop-off times unless you have other means of transportation. To make reservations, stop by the Stockdale Center Office.
