FROM THE DESK OF THE RESIDENT DIRECTOR
I hope everyone is having a great summer! My name is Taylor Burke and I am going to be the Resident Director of the Cooper Living Learning Center this year. I received my bachelor’s degree of in health and human performance with a business minor from the University of Wisconsin-Platteville. I am very happy to be back on this beautiful campus I call home.
The fall semester is almost here! I've included some helpful information you will need for the start of the school year.
Opening: Cooper will reopen on September 3rd for new students (freshmen and transfer students), and September 4th for returning students. You will need to bring your filled out Personal Data Form to the front desk of Cooper on the day of move-in. If you would like to buy an activity pass they will be on sale during move-in! You can purchase an activity pass for either $8 a semester or $15 for the year. The pass will give you the ability to rent items from the front desk like cooking supplies, board games, and pool table equipment. If you don't know for sure what to bring to campus don't worry. Just check out the department's packing list found here.
Lofts: Residents living within Cooper Hall are able to rent a wooden loft kit directly from the building. All lofts include an optional ladder and rail. For an additional cost you may purchase a shelf on which to set alarm clocks, books, glasses, or other items. To order a wooden loft please complete the wooden loft application form found here. For more information please visit the lofts section of our website. We recommend ordering the loft as soon as you get your housing assignment.
Please take a moment to look over the Residence Life page on the website following this link https://www.uwplatt.edu/residence-life. Here you will be able to find a lot of useful information that will be helpful to know before moving in! A big section to look in to is the Residence Hall Handbook, found under the Policies heading at the top of the page. This handbook lists out all the policies that we have set in our residence halls and also helps you know what not to bring to campus during move in! Also remember that Bike Lockers are available for rent through the Department of Residence Life. More information, including the rental form, is available through the Resources heading at the top of the page.
I am very excited to meet you all and looking forward to a great year!
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me at email@example.com.
