Dead Week (A-15)
Original Implementation: June 16, 1982
Last Revision: April 17, 2012
Dead week is an established tradition in higher education to allow students the necessary time to prepare for final examinations. During the last five class days of each long semester, written examinations (except to cover daily assignments) and themes or assignments beyond normal daily requirements are not to be assigned without written notification to the students prior to the twelfth class day.
The Division of University Affairs and major student groups of the university, including Student Government Association (SGA), Student Activities Association (SAA), Residence Hall Association (RHA), SFA Panhellenic Association (SFAPA), National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC), Interfraternity Counci (IFC) and Multicultural Greek Council (MGC), shall observe dead week by refraining from sponsoring on-campus student social activities (parties, dances, films, concerts, banquets). On-campus advertising for any social activity sponsored off-campus by a student group during dead week is not permitted.
