Happy December Cooper LLC!
Hard to believe the semester will be wrapping up in three weeks. Time sure does fly by when you are having a great time.
Remember to do the following:
- The semester is winding down and finals are fast approaching. I recommend taking a look at the finals exam schedule which can be found on the registrars website.
- Attend your mandatory wing meeting that will take place prior to finals week. The RAs will be going over closing information and the steps you need to take to leave for the semester.
Snow Emergency Parking (SEP)
- The university has worked with the city of Platteville to avoid abiding by the alternate side parking on city streets. Meaning, every night students would need to move their cars to the opposite side of the street for snow removal.
- SEP is in effect from November 15 - April 1.
- University police will issue $50 parking citation for any vehicle parked in violation of the SEP rules and the vehicle will be towed. The towing charge is $100 in addition to the $50 citation.
- SEP can be declared for the streets and/or lots.
- For more information visit the SEP webpage.
Academic Support Programs (ASP)
- ASP is located on the 3rd floor of Brigham Hall. Feel free to stop by the office, call at 608.342.1081, or email at email@example.com.
- They provide tutoring, writing assistance, academic coaching, academic advising, peer workshop instruction, and connections to a variety of resources that support learning.
Safety Tip of the Month | Illness and Water Main Breaks.
Airborne illnesses are quite common on college campuses. Generally high stress times (such as finals) tend to wear down a person’s immune system and make them more susceptible for illness. Make sure you are keeping yourself safe and healthy this year as we go into the final weeks of the semester.
Water main breaks can cause significant property damage to the affected area. In the case of a water main break, please be sure to report the issue and remain clear of the area. Be on the lookout for information from hall staff regarding water usage and any further directions. If the water main is in an area that affects a residence hall, water usage may be limited or unavailable for a certain amount of time.
