Hello Rountree Residents!
I hope you are enjoying the semester break. Several of you are here in the building; taking a Winterim class, praticipating in athletics, or working. We have two RA's here for the break who are here to assist you should you need anything. They work desk each day from 7pm-8pm. Should you need anything, please let them know.
Here are a few things to keep in mind and are pertinet to this time of year:
RA Selection! RA Selection for the 2017-2018 school year has begun! Do you want to impact others? Want to be a leader? Want to be a part of a team that creates a hall's community? Join the team - Become an RA! Please see your RA or myself for more information.
SEP: With the potential for snow around every corner, UW-Platteville has entered into our Snow Emergency Parking (SEP) months. During a declared "Snow Emergency", specific lots will have to be cleared on specific days. If a Snow Emergency is declared, you will be notified in three ways: 1) an email will be sent to your student email, 2) Signs will appear around the hall, and 3) RA staff will make an attempt to contact residents to alert them.
Safety Tip of the Month: Practicing good hygiene habits is the first step to preventing the spread of illness. If you are not feeling well, be sure to take good care of yourself by getting plenty of rest, washing your hands, and seeking professional help if your illness continues. Student Health Services on campus offers free flu shots to all students, so take advantage of one if you haven’t yet!
Enjoy the semester break and we look forward to welcoming you back for second semester!
