Happy New Year!
A brand new semester at UW-Platteville is about to begin, and we are excited to welcome you back into Rountree Commons. Staff is super excited to see you back here for the New Year!
For all the students new to Rountree, I welcome you and I look forward to getting to know you and I hope you enjoy your time here! For our returners, welcome back to the hall! Hopefully you enjoyed your break and are pumped to start classes! Just a reminder the halls open again for the spring semester on Thursday January 15th at 10:00am. Classes resume for the Spring Semester on Tuesday the 20th.
There are a lot of new things happening in Rountree this semester. Remember to be on the lookout for upcoming events from the posters, your RA, or Rountree Common’s facebook page. Also, don’t forget that every Tuesday night is hall council!
As a reminder your RA is on your wing to assist you if you have any questions with the start of the new year. RAs are meant to serve as a resource to you and give you opportunities to meet others within your wing and become better acquainted with UW-Platteville. If you personally are interested in applying for an RA position starting in Fall 2014, go here for further information. All applications are due January 21st.
Best of luck this semester!
