FROM THE DESK OF THE RESIDENT DIRECTOR
Welcome Summer and New Students!
We are busy gearing up for a great fall semester here at UW-Platteville! While change is a constant in life, it is a constant on campus as well. There will be lots of new things to see and changes taking place. These are all fun, exciting and helping us Pioneer our future!
Some things you can count on are:
Summer Hall: Are you taking classes on campus over the summer or working in the area? Do you need a place to live? If you answered yes to either of these questions, then you should consider staying on campus in Southwest Hall! Stay for the whole summer or for a couple of weeks. Fill out an application and let Residence Life know if you’re interested. For $120 per week, you get a great place to live without the hassle of utilities.
Welcome Crew: If you are looking to have a positive impact on our new students in the fall, to be an active member of the residence hall community, to promote an inclusive environment, and have a strong work ethic, then you should think about applying to be part of the welcome crew for next fall. Applications were emailed out, but you can always stop by and get on from me. Applications are due to the Resident Directors by Friday, May 25, 2018.
Summer Storage: Are you living on campus next year? Are you dreading the thought of packing everything up to take it home? If so, then you should consider Summer Storage! For $150, you can save time, avoid the hassle, and make move-in next fall that much easier. To review or print off a contract, check out the Residence Life Website. Be sure to view the contract for the hall that you will be in during the fall 2018 semester. Halls are broken down as follows:
