From the desk of the resident director
Hello Cooper Residents!
With March, comes a lot of exciting events happening in the hall and on campus. However, before highlighting those, remember to stay on top of your studies. I am sure many of you will have mid-terms, papers, and other projects that you have to complete within the next couple of weeks before spring break. Remember to put in the time NOW so you are not struggling to get out of the hole you’ve dug yourself into. It is always okay to ask for a little help. Your RAs and I are here for you. Don’t forget about all the other awesome resources that campus can provide as well.
Spring Break: This is always an exciting (and usually much needed) break! If you are heading home for spring break, think about whether or not there is anything you can take home now, as opposed to at the end of the semester. This could make move out at the end of the year a little easier.
Summer Hall & Summer Storage: Coming soon, look for information on summer housing as well as summer storage. Summer housing is a great option if you are staying in the Platteville area this summer to work or take classes. Summer storage is a great option if you are returning to the residence halls in the fall and do not want to take everything home with you this summer.
Friday Night Clubs (FNCs): If you are looking for something fun to do on Friday nights, be sure to check out each week’s FNC. They are a great thing to do with friends, a great way to meet new people, and a great way to have fun!
National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE): The NSSE is a way for university campuses to learn about the experiences of first-year and senior students. The survey gives a picture of how the University of Wisconsin-Platteville undergraduates spend their time and what they gain from attending college. If you are a freshmen or sophomore, you should have received an email inviting you to participate. Please take a few minutes to do so! NSSE offers students an opportunity to give voice to their experience. The results of the survey help the university make changes that benefit students.
Summer Jobs: Do you have a summer job yet? If not, now is a good time to start thinking about lining something up. Look for some great opportunities not only in your hometown, but here on campus as well!
