Hello Southwest Residents!
It's hard to believe that the time has come to don winter coats and hats as we embrace November! Where has the time gone? With an already action-packed semester, I hope that each of you have had a great semester so far. As we get further into the semster, I have a few more tips to share!
New Resident Director: As you may or may not know, we are in the process of hiring a new Resident Director for Southwest Hall after Ian was offered another position on campus! While we're sad to see Ian go, we are incredibly excited for the possibilities that a new director may bring to the building! As our search process concludes, we will keep you posted with your new director!
Get Involved! If you are busy studying, it can be a great idea to get out and take a break! Take a moment or two to step out of your study zone and embrace the campus events. Following Family Weekend, the residence halls will continue hosting some fantastic Friday Night Clubs for the month. Wilgus is hosting an Art Night on November 11th. Get those creative juices flowing! Then join Brockert Hall in Gobbling Up a Good Time on November 18th.
Class Scheduling! Have you met with your Academic Advisor yet to schedule your classes for next semester? If not, you should consider setting up a meeting ASAP. Check out this knowledge base article to help you with your schedule! Another great tool to utilize is your RA - they've been there before and are happy to help however they can.
Thanksgiving Break! **Please remember that the halls will close on Wednesday, November 23th, at 6pm for the Thanksgiving Holiday. Halls will reopen on Sunday, November 27th, at 12pm. If you intend to stay in the halls during the Thanksgiving break, please sign-up online here.**
Safety Tip of the Month: Lock up your valuables. Thefts can happen in a matter of seconds causing you to lose your laptop, phone, wallet, etc. Be sure to lock your door when you aren’t home or sleeping, don’t leave your items unattended on campus, and keep your vehicle locked.
Happy Fall, Southwest Hall!
