FROM THE DESK OF THE RESIDENT DIRECTOR

Hello Bridgeway Residents!  Happy February!

The month of February is a busy month as it marks the beginning of our preparation of next year.  As we look to start the room reservation process, we hope that you take the time to educate yourself about the process and stay up to date with all of the deadlines associated with the process.

Room Reservations:  The room reservation process for 2015-2016 begins on February 9th.  The full breakdown can be read on our information page (Read More Here) but residents will get a chance to sign up for their exact same room from the 9th until the 11th.  After that opens the ability to change to different locations within the hall or elsewhere on campus.  You should have already received mailbox flyers about this and posters will be located on every wing.  Don't be afraid to ask hall staff if you have any questions about this process!

The month of February also brings interesting weather.  If you have a car on campus please be aware of our snow emergency for parking procedures for both the residential lots and the streets.

Snow Emergencies:  February and March can be difficult months for snow fall in Wisconsin.  As such, it is important to know about our campus Snow Emergency Removal process.  You can read all about it by clicking this link.  When this is declared for either streets or parking lots, posters will be placed around Bridgeway Commons instructing you which days are which.  As with room reservations, this process may seem a bit overwhelming at first.  Don't worry - ask a staff member for help!  We want to spread the word as much as possible to avoid parking tickets or towing costs.

Finally, the month of February is a significant month for you to determine patterns and routines that will dictate the success of your semester.  We encourage you to be mindful how you are using your time and how you are taking care of your personal wellness as these two things have a tremendous impact on how your semester will play out.  Please take advantage of all the resources you have available to you.  If you need help doing so, please talk with your RA, the SA’s, or stop down to my office.

Wishing you a great February!
