There is not enough time for students to walk over in only an hour lunch, and therefore, students must have at least TWO hours of free time in order to go. Remember, this is a privilege and NOT a right. In addition, students are NOT allowed to use a car in order to get to the Square at Campus Pointe, and if students are caught either going to the Square or off campus in a car, this privilege will be revoked from all individuals who fail to follow the rules. Additionally, students who are on Academic Probation or on the Academic Ineligibility (AI) list are not allowed to go either. If you have any questions pertaining to the rules and regulations, do not hesitate to ask your ASB officers.
