A message from the Dean of Students:
Welcome to Spring 2016! We are excited to have you back. I would like to start the semester with an announcement as well as an important reminder:
1. Effective Jan. 6, 2016, Georgia Southern University will prohibit self-balancing scooters, more popularly known as hoverboards, because of recent concerns by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and the potential hazards these devices may cause on campus. Hoverboards include self-balancing scooters, battery-operated scooters, and hands-free segways. These items should not be used or stored on any property owned, leased, or controlled by Georgia Southern University. Specifically, hoverboards are banned in all Georgia Southern residence halls, academic buildings, and student services buildings. This restriction is covered by our Student Conduct Code (http://students.georgiasouthern.edu/conduct/files/Code-15-16-table-of-contents-hyperlink-final-for-Adobe-hyperlinks-9.1.15.pdf) under the following regulations:
a. Failure to Comply – “failing to follow established University policies or guidelines” (The Student Conduct Code, pg. 6, point 12)
b. Motorcycles, Mopeds, and Scooters- “storing or operating any motorzied vehicle within a residence hall, apartment/suite unit or patio/patio closets; parking any motorcycle, moped, scooter, or other motorized devices anywhere that is not a designated parking area.” (The Student Conduct Code, pg. 27, point 12)
2. This is a reminder that Georgia Southern University is a Tobacco-Free Campus. “The use of all forms of tobacco products on property owned, leased, rented or belonging to Georgia Southern University, or in any way used by the University or its affiliates, is expressly prohibited. ‘Tobacco Products’ is defined as cigarettes, cigars, pipes, all forms of smokeless tobacco, clove cigarettes and any other smoking devices that use tobacco such as hookahs or simulate the use of tobacco such as electronic cigarettes” (The Student Conduct Code, pgs. 8-9, point 25).
In closing, I encourage you to reflect on our Georgia Southern V.A.L.U.E.S. as you approach Spring semester (http://students.georgiasouthern.edu/conduct/about/v-a-l-u-e-s/). Consider your personal safety and the safety of all Georgia Southern Eagles as you transition back to campus. Let’s have a great semester!
To better serve our patrons, Parking and Transportation has established a program to send email statements concerning unpaid tickets and their delinquency.
For tickets properly assigned to accounts, an email for each unpaid ticket will be sent:
- Within (7) days of issuance, when a ticket may be eligible for appeal or discounted payment
- After (7) days, when an open/unpaid ticket is no longer eligible for appeal or discounted payment
- After (30) days, as a final notice when a ticket when remains open/unpaid
This program began Saturday, December 5 2015. Initially, an email will be sent for each open/unpaid ticket correlating with the timeline above. For example, if a patron has (4) tickets older than (30) days that remain unsettled, the patron can expect to receive (4) emails concerning such, with attachments referencing ALL open/unpaid tickets existing within the same timeline phase.
After the program has successfully sent statements to all tickets issued prior to Dec. 5, future emails can be expected each time an open/unpaid ticket ages through the timeline above. Thank you for your patience during this initial program launch.
Please note that tickets currently under appeal will not be sent any statements until a decision has been delivered. Furthermore, statements sent may not be a concise list of all existing tickets, paid or unpaid; tickets not appearing on a statement remain valid. Best efforts are made to send statements to valid email addresses.
Unpaid tickets remain valid, regardless of this program’s communications.
