Remember, we are the most significant student presence on campus until CR begins on August 20th. Please use all approved walkways. Have your parent or guardian drop you off by parking in a space rather than stopping quickly to let you out. Thank you!


Please note that the CR Cafeteria summer hours are currently Monday-Thursday from 11:00 am-2:00 pm until August 20th. They are not open on Fridays, so students must make other arrangements for lunch.


AR offers a school lunch that is served every day outside the SSC.




Drinking fountains are closed. Please bring a bottle of water. Drinking water is refillable in the SSC & the AC if needed.




Pre-arrival health screenings will be available through the CR Campus App or in-person with the health screener. Health screeners will be located at the Student Services Building, the LRC, the Cafeteria, and the Science and Humanities buildings.  Any student without the CR Campus App must receive a wristband from a health screener before their first class. REBAR members will be available to help support our new students through this process.




Monday, August 20th, is the due date for CR Booklist. You can find books required for classes on the CR Bookstore website and your class syllabus. Do not worry if you cannot meet this deadline, as some professors may not have posted this information yet. You must turn book lists into the AR Attendance Office.
