It’s Nov. 27. Have you registered and made payment arrangements for the spring semester?
‘Get it Done’ by Friday, Dec. 1.
Students only need to set up a payment plan at this point. The first payment is not due until Jan. 2, 2024, unless you enroll in a five-payment plan option in which case the first payment is due Dec. 2. If you set up a payment plan before Dec. 1, you’ll receive a free t-shirt. T-shirt has to be picked up in the Student Business Office.
Students need to read their emails from the Student Business office, which explains exactly what is needed to complete this process.
Students who complete these steps before leaving campus are able to more easily receive assistance, if needed. For more help:

If you brave the weekend sales, we humbly ask you to consider purchasing a toy for our Elf Louise Toy Drive. For those of you who prefer shopping online, you can also purchase your gift and have it directly shipped to the address on the flyer below. The OLLU community has always generously provided 100+ toys each year since starting this tradition and hopes to continue to do so for many years to come.
We have a busy month ahead of us as we venture forth unto the end of the semester. While you may be pre-occupied with studying, grading, and working, we invite you to pause and join us as we celebrate several of our annual traditions like our Community Tree Decorating and Lighting on Tuesday from Noon-2 p.m. in the Mall Area, and most especially one of our longest standing Signature Events, our 88th Annual Candlelight Advent Service on Saturday at 6:30 p.m. in Sacred Heart Chapel.
Whether you come to one or all of our hOLLUday events, we thank you for continuing to live out our OLLU Core Values of COMMUNITY * INTEGRITY * TRUST * SERVICE.
“Rejoice always, pray constantly, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.” – 1 Thes 5:18
To ensure all projects for the end of the semester are completed in a timely manner, the last day to submit projects to the Marketing and Communications Office is Friday. This includes ecards, evites, programs, fliers and any other print or digital items.
Employees are reminded that there is a one-year, carry-over limit on accrued vacation time. The “use-it-or-lose-it” date is Dec. 31.
Employees cannot carry over beyond this date more than the number of annual vacation days for which they are currently eligible. If work or medical conditions prohibit the employee from taking their accrued vacation by Dec. 31, the chief administrator of that division can request an extension of one additional year. The chief administrator and the employee must make every effort to schedule and use the accrued vacation in the coming year as additional extensions will not be permitted.
