We are just a few short days away from opening our building to welcome students back to the halls! RA training has begun and some early arrivals are already in the building. There is a lot of information that has been coming your way, but there are a few important documents and information pieces we want you to know.

An item you will want to help speed up your check in process is your Personal Data Form. That can be found by clicking here. Please print this off and fill it out prior to your arrival to campus.

The next item you will want to make sure you review is the opening newsletter for Rountree commons. It has important information regarding items for check in, who your RA is, Hall Activity Passes, and Loft information. You can read the newsletter by clicking here.

The final two resources I have for you all to review before coming to campus are the Residence Hall Handbook and the Rountree Commons Guide to Living. Both documents are very important to read and review regarding policies in our building. So if you're wondering what you can or can't bring, or items against Residence Hall policies, you will want to check out those items. You can find the Handbook here, and the guide to living here.

Our check in schedule for opening weekend is below:

Saturday, Aug. 29: 8 a.m.–2 p.m.
Sunday, Aug. 30: 10 a.m.–2 p.m.
Monday, Aug. 31: 10 a.m.–2 p.m.
Tuesday, Sept. 1: 10 a.m.–2 p.m.

We are very excited to welcome you back! Be seeing you soon!
