Greetings Rountree Commons!

The school year is just speeding through! We are getting close to mid-terms so make sure you are prepping appropriately. Remember we have a lot of great resources on campus to help you succeed in your classes.

Rountree Hall Council is up in full swing and we have a lot of fun activities planned for this semester. Remember Hall Council meets Tuesday nights at 9:30 p.m., so come on down to the first floor of Rountree to participate. Keep an eye out for the hall council activities coming soon. There will be a bulletin board completed in the front lobby to keep you up to date with all that is happening.

Homecoming is happening in the second week of October. The RAs are working diligently to organize teams to get people involved and participating in activities! Check out the schedule here or contact your RA to see how you can get involved. We will be in the parade, so if you can’t participate in the events, be sure to come and watch and support your hall!

A campus wide e-mail was sent out from the Director of Residence Life earlier this month regarding the two-year live in requirement for all students at UW-Platteville, make sure you have read this e-mail.

As always there are a lot of great events happening on campus so make sure you check the campus calendar accordingly.

Have a great one, and enjoy all of the beautiful fall colors on campus!
