Utilize Your SVA Email: Please, please, please check your emails. Thanks!
Community Meeting announcements can now be found on the recreation bulletin board located next to the weight room. Please take time to read them each week as there is important information on here.
Google Calendar: Students please update your schedules using Google Calendar. Thanks!
Sign-up Sheets: Keep an eye on the sign-up sheets on the recreation board for upcoming on-campus, off-campus, and student initiative activities. Remember to flip through the pages on the clipboards so you don’t miss out on any activities and be on time to activities you sign up for. Speak to a rec therapist if you have any questions.
Good news! To provide students with more opportunities for shopping, visiting the library, and socializing off-campus, the SVA shuttle is now running every weeknight, and with limited service on Sundays! The service runs just like a bus with stops at specific locations at specific times.
The Shuttle will not run between December 18, 2017 and January 2, 2018
The current M-F schedule is as follows:
Enrichment: Updated 12/12/2017
Music Room Use: Please don’t use any equipment or instruments in the music room, unless you have been shown the correct way to handle and play them by our music instructor Robert Seely.
The music room is open for practicing any time a lesson is not being taught there, however, please leave the music room as clean and as tidy as you found it. This will prevent instruments from getting broken. If you would like to try a new instrument just talk with Robert Seely and he’ll get you trained.
Student Activity Room Use: The purpose of the SAR is for social interaction not lounging or napping. Please keep the SAR looking nice by cleaning up after yourself. You must shower and have clean clothes on when sitting on the bean bags and keep any food or drinks off the bean bags. The SAR will remain unlocked, but if it becomes apparent that it is used for napping or it is not being taken care of, the room will be locked during business hours and will only be opened for specific use of the room by students.
If you have work or classes during an activity, you are not excused from these responsibilities. You must go to work or class unless given permission by a Rec Therapist and your work supervisor/teacher. We encourage you to sign up and attend activities that are not during your work/class time. If you have any questions, please speak with a Rec Therapist.
