FROM THE DESK OF THE RESIDENT DIRECTOR
Hello Bridgeway Commons Residents!
Congratulations on making it halfway through the semester! You have all made it to March and there are lots of exciting things to look forward to in the month of March. Here are a few items to keep in mind to make your March successful and enjoyable.
Spring Break: Spring Break is nearing very quickly. Though Bridgeway does not officially close during Spring Break, we do ask all residents that wish to stay for a portion or all of break to sign up. The sign-up sheet is available at the front desk and will be until noon on Friday, March 13th. The hall will reopen at noon on Sunday, March 22nd. No matter what your Spring Break plans we hope you have fun and find some time to relax, but be sure to be safe!
Often times, there is pressure for college students to heavily drink or participate in activities that they may not normally do while on spring break. Especially for those that are traveling, please take some time to think about your plans and make sure that you are doing all you can to be safe. Safety ranges from safe consumption of alcohol to making sure your hotel room is locked while you sleep. Also be sure that someone always knows where you are if you choose to venture away from your travel group. Lastly, be mindful of how much cash you are carrying or the areas in which you are withdrawing cash from the ATMs. Being extra cautious about these little things can make a huge difference in your experience.
This is also a great time of the year to do a bit of “spring cleaning” in your rooms. Don’t wait until the end of the semester to pack everything up for the summer. Take some time in your room before heading home for Spring Break and take home those items that you aren’t planning to use or that haven’t been used in a while. De-cluttering your space can help you to feel more productive and comfortable in your suite! Rolling carts are available at the front desk if needed.
Class Registration: Signing up for new classes is right around the corner! Have you been looking ahead? It is never too early to start scheduling those appointments with your advisor to plan for next semester. Advisors get very busy right around class registration and schedules fill up fast. Don’t miss out on the classes you need by waiting until the last minute to get your PIN number!
Involvement: There are still several opportunities for involvement in the hall and on campus this month and the rest of the semester! As a reminder, the Bridgeway Commons Hall Council meets every Wednesday evening at 9:15 pm in the Bridgeway Commons MPR. We always enjoy seeing new faces. Be sure to check out the publicity around the building that identifies the theme for the night. If you are looking to get more involved in the hall please be sure to touch base with your RA.
Have a fantastic month of March! Please feel free to stop by my office with any questions or concerns.
