Greetings Bridgeway Students,

We made it to May! The semester is almost over and Bridgeway will be closing before you know it. Please be sure to read through the following reminders to ensure a successful last couple weeks and make your move-out as easy as possible!

Closing Information: Your RA should have had a closing wing meeting with you to tell you what you need to do in order to leave.  Please make sure to look at the room diagram provided on the closing information bulletin board.  You will also be receiving a checklist of things you need to do prior to leaving.  This checklist will be stapled to your cork board outside your door.  Please leave it up as staff utilizes that form when they do checkouts.

Finals:  Finals are almost here!  Make sure you take the necessary time to prepare yourself for your exams!  Best of luck to all of you as you take your finals and finish all your projects!

Loft Return:  Loft Return for Bridgeway Commons will be on Thursday, May 5th from 7:30-9:30 PM.  Please bring your loft to the center lounge on your wing located near the laundry room.

Summer Storage: Once again, we are offering an option for student to store their things this summer. You can store your things right in your Fall 2016 room so it is already there and ready for you upon move in. Items will need to be boxed up and placed on the bed or in the closet. More information as well as the contract may be found here. Signed contracts are due to the Residence Life office in Royce Hall by Friday, May 6th.

Summer Housing: If you are planning on staying in Platteville this summer and are looking for a place to live, you can always stay right on campus in Southwest Hall! Southwest Hall will be open for summer residents to rent out a space on a weekly basis. This is a great option for residents planning on staying just a short time or all summer long. Staying in Southwest lessens the hassle of having to move. Check out the Residence Life website for more information!

Welcome Crew:  Will you be returning to the halls next year?  Interested in being a part of Welcome Crew?  There are applications at the front desk.  Please fill that out the application and return it to the front desk.  This is a great opportunity to meet students and welcome them to the hall in August!

Thank you:  On behalf of the staff of Bridgeway Commons, we thank you for a great year in the building.  We hope that this year has been filled with positive memories that will last you a lifetime and look forward to seeing you again in the fall if you are returning!  If your journey is taking you elsewhere, we wish you all the best!
