Ordering Course Materials for Spring Term
The Dean's Office and SEPC recently conducted a survey about how you prefer to get your course books and materials. The results were overwhelmingly in favor of giving you the information you need to purchase books through whatever vendor you choose. We will no longer be using the Bennington "Virtual Bookstore."
Instead, in mid-January, we will provide you with the necessary information to order books and materials on your own. You are encouraged to order well before the term begins. Although a limited number of books will be available for each class in the on-campus bookstore, these are primarily intended to facilitate the add/drop process.
Be on the lookout for an email in mid-January with the link to course material information.
College housing will reopen for the spring term at noon on Sunday, February 16, 2014. Any student who arrives prior to that date and time without advance permission from the Office of Student Life will be charged $100 per night. Students who need housing accommodations prior to their arrival date for extenuating circumstances should contact the Office of Student Life (x4330 or 802-440-4330 from off campus). If your request is granted, there is a $75.00 charge per night. Please plan your travel accordingly.
Note: For students attending Senior Conference, houses will reopen at noon on Saturday, February 15, 2014.
All items stored in the Bingham basement and in Barnes storage areas must be removed by 9:00 am on Monday, February 24, 2014. Items not removed by this time will be considered abandoned property and will be donated or disposed of accordingly. Storage and van availability will be posted in Digital Coffee Hour before the beginning of spring term.
