What is your overnight guest policy?

In order to preserve our hall community for the students, we prefer that parents make arrangements to stay off-campus during their overnight visits to Abilene.  If a sibling wants to stay in the hall with their brother or sister, they must be 16 years or older. Any overnight guest may stay for a maximum of two nights.
