An exception to this policy is for evenings before a holiday. It is the responsibility of each resident to make sure his/her activities are not disturbing to neighbors. During this time, talking, music, television, or guest should not be heard outside the residentís room. Lounges may be used for group studying. Noise should not be audible outside the study area.
