From the desk of the resident director
Hello Cooper Residents!
February is upon us, and it's sure to be an action-packed month! With upcoming events and themes such as: Room Reservation for Fall '17, Snow Emergency Parking, RA Selection, and class responsibilities, and campus programming, it's sure to be fun! Check out the info below to prepare you for February.
SEP: With the potential for snow around every corner, UW-Platteville has entered into our Snow Emergency Parking (SEP) months. During a declared "Snow Emergency", specific lots will have to be cleared on specific days. If a Snow Emergency is declared, you will be notified in three ways: 1) an email will be sent to your student email, 2) Signs will appear around the hall, and 3) RA staff will make an attempt to contact residents to alert them.
Black History Month: February is also Black History Month: There are plenty of ways to celebrate Black History Month on campus and within the hall. Keep your eye out for these wonderful opportunities.
Room Reservation: Room reservation is based upon your credit standing. Below are the dates when you will be able to reserve your room. Remember, your $150 deposit must be submitted before you are allowed to reserve a room. Further information can be found on the Residence Life’s website.

Safety Tip of the Month: Mental health issues are quite common for students in their young twenties. It is so important to seek our help and assistance if something isn’t feeling right. Common signs of mental health changes include major changes in appetite, sleeping patterns, energy levels, and interest in certain activities. If you or a friend is experiencing some or all of these symptoms, we encourage you to seek support from our University Counseling Services located on the 2nd Floor of Royce Hall.
