From the desk of the resident director
Hello Cooper Residents!
You might be busy studying but take time to attend some of the great events going on around campus. The residence halls are hosting some great Friday Night Clubs this month. Wilgus is hosting Paint and Punch November 11th. You’ll be able to enjoy yummy mocktails as you learn how to paint 3 different options of paintings on actual canvas, all free of charge! Then, join Brockert Hall for Pies and Pajamas November 18th.
Safety is always important so please utilize this safety tip for November: Thefts can happen in a matter of seconds causing you to lose your laptop, phone, wallet, etc. Be sure to lock your door when you aren’t home or sleeping, don’t leave your items unattended on campus, and keep your vehicle locked.
Please remember that the halls will close on Wednesday, November 23rd, at 6pm for the Thanksgiving Holiday. Halls will reopen on Sunday, November 27, at 12pm. If you intend to stay in the halls during the Thanksgiving break please sign-up on the Department of Residence Life online form.
November to-do list:
• Read your “Safety 401 e-mail” This e-mail outlines important safety tips to think about during the month of November, as well as the remainder of the year.
• Be on the lookout for “Snow Emergency” information. This will provide you instructions on where you are allowed to park during the snow removal operation on campus.
• Attend your mandatory wing meeting to fill out the EBI (Educational Benchmark Institute) and Student Staff Evaluation survey. The EBI survey will be handed out as a paper copy from your Resident Assistant. The Student Staff Evaluation survey will be sent via e-mail. Your cooperation in filling out these surveys is appreciated and helps us ensure we are providing the best possible service to you during your stay in the residence halls.
• Take a look at the Cooper Facebook Page in order to receive the most up to date events happening around campus.
Please don’t hesitate to come see me if you have any questions, concerns, or just to say hi!
