IN CASE YOU GET STRANDED AT THE SEMINARY

If severe weather occurs while you are here at the Seminary, and it is unsafe for you to travel home, you may contact the Business Office to see if there is availability to reserve a room for an emergency overnight stay, billed at the student room rate.

Emergency kits are available at the SCC Food Bank. It's recommended that you keep an emergency kit in your car including linens, a change of clothes, and personal care items just in case.
