Residence halls prepare for CMU vs. MSU game weekend, policies similar to Western weekend
Special policies will be enforced in all residence halls on Central Michigan University’s campus in preparation for the Michigan State University football team visiting for a game at Kelly/Shorts Stadium this weekend.
Information will be sent to CMU resident hall students, as well as MSU students, regarding important policies taking place this weekend. The policies are slated to be enforced from Friday to Sunday.
According to an informational sheet from the Office of Residence Life, building doors, except front doors, will be locked from 5 p.m. on Friday until 6 a.m. on Sunday. Residence halls will require a current Campus ID and a room key to allow entry to the building.
“We are anticipating that many of our residence hall students will be here for the weekend and many will have friends visiting from MSU or other colleges because of the big game,” Joan Schmidt, associate director of Residence Life, said. “We are hopeful they will follow the rules and regulations. We do want them to be aware that not only are they responsible for the rules and regulations but they are also responsible for their guests’ behavior.”
Each four-person room is limited to six guests. The two-person rooms, like those in Barnes and Robinson Halls, are limited to three guests. Every visitor must check in and obtain a wristband that will grant them access to their friend’s hall throughout the weekend. Photo identification is required to receive a wristband.
Typical disciplinary measures will be taken if rules are broken. Disruptive guests will be asked to leave the campus.
Schmidt said procedures for MSU weekend are similar to those followed in previous years when CMU played Western Michigan University.
“This year, we will also have added security in our residence halls as well as patrolling some of the more populated areas near our halls,” said Schmidt. “These security staff members will work with our residence life staff to assure our students the safest community we can provide.”
Luanne Goffnett, residence hall director at Barnes Hall, said some students want to change the party image that CMU tends to carry and she sees events, such as this weekend, as good opportunities to demonstrate positive behavior.
“During any event on campus, I always remind students that they are representing not only themselves, but CMU students as a whole with their behavior,” Goffnett said.
