Hello Southwest Hall!
We’ve made it to the end of another year. Congratulations on all your hard work thus far, only a bit longer before summer vacation and for some of you—graduation! With May being here, there are several important items to keep in mind to make the end of the semester a successful one. Please be sure to review the following and let me know if you have any questions.
Southwest Closing: Southwest Hall officially closes Friday, May 15th at 6:00 pm. Only students with extreme circumstances will be allowed to remain in the halls past this time. Take time now to be planning when you will be moving out of the hall. As you are packing up and getting ready to head out, be sure to consult the closing information available to you throughout the building. Watch your email as well for important closing reminders!
Summer Storage: Residence Life is still accepting contracts for Summer Storage! Participating in this program will ease your move out by not having to lug all your things home for the summer. You may store your belongings and any of those large pieces of furniture that you don’t want to try and get in your car right in your bedroom for Fall 2015 for only $150. For contracts, click here.
Welcome Crew: If you have really enjoyed your time here in Southwest this year and are returning to the hall next year, consider joining the Southwest Hall Welcome Crew! You get to beat the rush of move-in weekend and add some valuable leadership experience to your resume. This is a great opportunity to meet others in the building and keep our move-in process smooth and hassle free. Applications are due to me or the Front Desk by May 8th and are available for pick up at the Front Desk.
Summer Hall: Need a place to stay this summer? Southwest Hall is open for the summer and Residence Life is still accepting applications! Southwest is available to students in need of summer housing for $120/week. Students are able to stay for as little as a week or as long as the entire summer, but only pay on a week by week basis! Follow this link for the Summer Hall Application. All applications may be taken directly to the Department of Residence Life office in Royce Hall.
Thank you so much for a wonderful first year in Southwest Hall. It has been great getting to know many of you over the course of the past school year. I look forward to seeing many faces back here in the fall for another fun year in Southwest Hall. Congratulations to all of our graduates, we wish you luck with your next adventure whether that be grad school or entering the world of employment! I hope everyone has a safe and relaxing summer filled with many great memories!
