University prepares for holiday break

December 20, 2005 12:00AM

As the year comes to a close, most of the staff at Pittsburg State University are getting ready to take a short break. Academic and administrative offices will close at the end of the day on Wednesday, Dec. 21, and will reopen at 8 a.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 3. During that time, the heat will be reduced significantly in most campus buildings to conserve energy.

The Overman Student Center and the University Bookstore, located in the student center, will observe reduced hours over the break. Sodexho retail food service in the student center closed on Dec. 15 and will reopen on Jan. 18.

Not everyone at PSU takes a holiday during semester break. Dean of Learning Resources Robert Walter said Axe Library will be open most days during the break on a slightly reduced schedule. Regular library hours will resume on Jan. 19.

Walter said that Axe Library is open to all persons throughout the community year round, but that many non-campus library users find the holiday break an attractive time to use the many services the library offers.

/It is a quiet time and parking is much easier," Walter said. "Many people in the community seem to enjoy a relaxing afternoon in the library during the time that the rest of the campus is closed."

Some campus employees, including a small number of persons in the Physical Plant and the University Police, will worth through the break.
