Hello Rountree Fans!
March is going to fly by this year, so make sure you are keeping track of everything happening! Spring break starts Friday March 13th. If you are interested in signing up to stay over spring break, stop by the front desk to indicate you are staying. If you are not staying the building closes at 6pm on the 13th! Please contact your RA or myself if you have any questions regarding the building closing.
Midterms are coming up for most of you. So remember to get plenty of sleep and know that there are many resources for tutoring or assistance to help you succeed during these busy times.
A reminder to current freshman in the building, don’t forget to reserve a room for next fall and pay your pre-payment. The UW-System has a two year residency requirement, so you want to make sure you submit your rooming preferences in time! If you have questions about the requirement or sign up, please go here or ask your RA or myself.
Keep on trucking everyone, and don’t let the snow get you down.
Have wonderful and safe spring break!
Rountree Commons Resident Director
