FROM THE DESK OF THE RESIDENT DIRECTOR
Greetings Bridgeway Commons!
Can you believe it’s already November? Though the semester’s end will be here before we know it, we still have the month to prepare for finals and the semester end closing. Please be sure to take a look at the following items of information and make sure you are on track for the end of the semester.
Southwest Hall Sign-up for 2016-2017
Are you interested in living in Southwest Hall? The first part of the sign-up process is specifically for current Southwest Hall residents to sign up, but the remaining process is for students with 60 credits or move. Please click here for more in-depth information regarding Southwest Hall Sign-up. If you have questions specific to this, please talk with your RA.
Midterm grades were due late October. Be sure to check your course grades on PASS and follow-up as necessary. It is still not too late to try and get a handle on a struggling grade. Be sure to work with your instructors and attend their office hours to seek help. Other great resources include University Tutoring Services, Writing and Tutoring Center and Student Support Services. All of these great campus offices are here to help you to be successful.
Keep yourself motivated to finish the semester strong. It can be easy to lose motivation in the middle of the semester, but be sure to be taking care of yourself and your academics. Forming study groups can really be a beneficial way to make studying more of a social experience and boosting your motivation.
Bridgeway Commons will close for students not registered to stay for the break beginning at 6:00 PM on Wednesday, November 25th. The halls reopen for students beginning at noon on Sunday, November 29th. If you would like to stay in Bridgeway Commons for all or part of Thanksgiving Break, please follow this link to sign up. There is no charge to stay for the break.
Bridgeway Commons Spring 2016 Intents
All residents will be asked to complete an intent form for the spring semester coming up. These forms are used to determine room changes, open spaces, etc. Residents in Bridgeway Commons and all residence halls are held to a full academic year contract, but are able to change rooms or move to a different suite-style building if they would like. Note: no students living in the suite-style halls may move to a traditional hall per contract terms.
We do terminate contracts for limited reasons including graduation, participating in a university sponsored activity (i.e. internship, co-op, and student teaching) or discontinuing your status as a student. Please be sure to stop by the Department of Residence Life office in 120 Royce Hall to pick up the contract release paperwork. The office is open from 7:45 AM-4:15 PM Monday through Friday.
Students interested in moving into Bridgeway Commons for the spring 2016 semester may email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to express interest and be put on a waiting list. Notification of placement will be sent out via email in early December.
Have a wonderful month of November! As always, please be sure to stop by or email with questions or clarification.
