From the desk of the Resident Director
The spring 2019 semester is quickly coming upon us!
I hope everyone has had safe travels over the break and has been able to get a little bit of time to rest and relax. As you are wrapping up your break, there are a few things that you can think about to get ready for the next semester.
Winterim: If you are taking Winterim classes, and wish to return to your room here in Rountree, that's great! Please make sure you are signing-up on the Residence Life website for coming back early. If you live in Rountree, there is no additional charge.
Room Reservation: When the spring semester begins, it will be time to start planning next school year and where you will be staying. The room reservation process for the 2019-2020 school year starts February 11, 2019 with Same Residence Hall Room Reservation. Be sure to check out the Residence Life website for more details. Take some time over break to think about where you want to live next year!
Want to be an RA!?: Believe it or not, it is time to start thinking about RA applications for the 2019/2020 school year. Applications are available in Royce Hall and on Handshake. They must be turned in by January 23 at 4:00pm.
Graduates: Best of luck with your next adventures! We are proud of you.
Spring 2019 Semester: Classes start up again on Tuesday, January 22. Be sure to get your textbooks before classes start. The Textbook Center will be open on that Monday, January 21 from 9am - 6pm.
