From the desk of the resident director
Wow, how is it May already? It seems that this academic year has gone so quickly!
Whether you say the school year went by fast…or you feel like it dragged on, I sincerely hope that you have enjoyed your year at UW-Platteville! Whether you are graduating, or coming back next year, there are a few things to keep in mind.
Closing for the Semester: Summer is almost here! Are you ready? If possible, begin taking things hope that you know you will not need. For example: If you have a couple sweatshirts and a light jacket, it is probably safe to take home your winter jacket. Make sure that you are signing up for a time to check out with your RA. You RA will be posting a sign up schedule outside their door coming soon. Please remember that RAs are students too. They have finals and projects that they must complete as well, so please be respectful of their time. To help ensure that you check out is easy and hassle free, please make sure you are ready to go when your time that you signed up for comes around. If you have any questions, please ask!
In addition to closing, let’s think about opening for Fall 2018! If you are living in the residence halls in the fall and would love the opportunity to move-in early, and help out new students, then consider becoming part of the fall 2018 Welcome Crew! Pick up an application at the Front Desk.
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 right here 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.
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:
Ditch the Dumpster: As we get closer to finals week, GoodWill bins will be placed in the lobby for you to donate you new or used items that could still be used, instead of throwing them in the trash. Help prevent our landfills from getting too big!
It has been a pleasure to serve as your Resident Director this last year. Please stop by with any additional questions you may have. Happy Summer.
