To all of those who have recently found out they will be living in Rountree Commons for the fall 2017 semester, welcome! To all of those who will be returning, we will be excited to welcome you back as well! Rountree is an exciting, energy filled hall to live in. The staff has planned a weeks worth of fun and engaging activities to kick off the school year to help you get aclimated to Rountree, UW-Platteville, and your new hall-mates. Look for more information to come out later this summer about Rountree and move-in!
For now, there are a few things that new and returning folks to Rountree can begin working on. First, make sure you print off and bring your Personal Data Form to move-in. You will not be able to check in without completing and turning in this from. You may need to check your records for some if the information needed for this form. Second, take a look at this nifty packing list and begin packing. Just like you don't want to wait until the night before a big test to study...you don't want to wait until the night before move-in to start packing. A little bit of advanced planning can go a long way!
Again, we are looking forward to you moving in for the fall 2017 semester. Remember, it's always a great day to be a Pioneer in Rountree Commons!
