Important Spring Break Information

Hello Students,

Spring Break is almost upon us! All residence halls will shut down for the break on Friday, March 2 at 6 p.m., and will reopen at 2 p.m. on Sunday, March 11.

Please be advised that there are VERY LIMITED services available for Traditional Undergraduate Day students during this time. As such, residents are required to vacate their residence halls.

The only exceptions that may be made are for students required to stay by faculty/staff members for University sanctioned events and/or full time/day undergraduate academic responsibilities or for students who live more than 300 miles from campus. If you reside more than 300 miles away, you may request to stay on campus at the Office of Campus Life.

Students who must stay on campus over the break for a University sanctioned event must coordinate their request to stay through their staff/faculty advisor. 

All requests must be submitted by 10 a.m. on Monday, February 26. Requests later than this date cannot be guaranteed approval.

If you have any questions about Spring Break closing, please talk with your Resident Advisor about the process.


Congratulations to this year’s Service Excellence Award Winners!

It is a long-standing tradition of our University to publicly acknowledge the staff who have contributed to our success. Each spring we hold the Service Excellence Dinner, where staff members who are celebrating milestone work anniversaries are recognized. It is also an opportunity for us to thank them for sharing their gifts with the DeSales community. And, as a welcome to the University, we invite new hires and their guests, too. This year’s dinner will be held on Monday, April 30.

One of the highlights of the evening is the presentation of two awards: Mark Siegfried, Telecommunications Team Lead, was selected as the Support Staff Employee of the Year, and Melissa Lenhart-Young, Associate Registrar, was selected as the Professional Staff Employee of the Year. I ask that you extend congratulations to Mark and Melissa for earning these distinctions and thank them for the valuable contributions they have made to the University over the years.


Computer Science Club Program of the Month – Entries Due 2/28

Create a C++ program for the following problem:

Write a program that takes a text string and a target string as input, and outputs whether the target string appears as a subsequence of the text string. The subsequence needs to occur in the same order in both strings, but does not necessarily need to be contiguous in the text string; for example, “bnn” occurs as a subsequence of “banana,” but not of “Annabell.” Both strings must be input exactly as the strings to be used, with nothing artificially separating the characters. You may assume that both strings are nonempty and are of length at most 20.

Win $20 Amazon gift card.
Submit the program by Feb. 28. Click here for more details.
