FAQ

How do I buy books with VR authorization?

Go to the Barnes & Noble College Bookstore at Park Point. Go to any cash register and ask if they have your VR book authorization. More information can be found here.

Are there intramurals on campus?

An extensive program of intramural activities is offered each semester. Men's, women's and coed team activities include basketball, indoor soccer, volleyball, softball, flag football and ice hockey and badminton. You can also compete individually in tennis, golf, racquetball and table tennis.

What are placement tests?

During SVP, you will take placement tests in math, reading, and writing. Placement means determining what level of classes you should take – not too easy but not too hard. Be sure to bring a calculator for the math test.
