Greetings Rountree!

I hope that April finds you having a great spring semester.  With the hopeful return of nicer weather, there are a few things I am wanting to let you know about.

Summer storage is available for the first time this coming summer for select halls.  If you are returning to living on campus next year, please visit the Department of Residence Life's Webpage at and click on the appropriate link on the right side of the page for the contract to view the cost and information.  These contracts are due back to the Residence Life office in Royce Hall by May 2.

Registration for classes is upon us and if you have not met with your advisor, now would be the time to get your classes figured out so you will be ready to go when your time arrives.

Finally, April break will be April 18-21 with no classes on the 18th or 21st.  Rountree stays open, but we ask that you sign up at the front desk next week so we know who is here in case of emergencies.  There will be no dining services open during that time.

Finally, April is one of the busiest months on campus with events, programs, speakers and award celebrations, be sure to be watching the postings wall for great things to do this month. 

Have a great day!
