Happy Summer Rountree Fans!
I hope you are all doing well, and enjoying the summer weather that has finally made its way to Wisconsin. Even though many students are not on campus this summer, there is still a lot that is happening in preparation for you all to return next fall. Rountree’s opening theme for the year will be: Divergent. Keep an eye out for a newsletter coming to you in August regarding some important check-in information specific to our hall.
Many of you may have questions regarding Rountree and the status of the building because of the tornado which hit campus in June. There are daily updates here, which has the most up-to-date information regarding Rountree and the other areas affected.
Just a reminder, Rountree is now closed for the summer and there will not be access in the building, but if you are a new student and are interested in seeing a room you may contact the prospective student’s office and see a sample room in McGregor Hall. Also, be sure to check out McGregor during your New Student Registration tours.
Resident Assistant and Senior Assistant training begins in August and we will begin to prep for your arrival during Labor Day Weekend. We are so excited to have you back and can’t wait to begin a new year. As a reminder, if you are interested in hall council, we will have some open positions in our executive board. This is a great way to get involved and meet new people.
Enjoy your summer, make some great memories, and we will see you in September!
