Students are encouraged to vacate their accommodations within 24 hours of their last final exam and no later than Saturday, May 16 at 4:00 p.m. unless arrangements have been made for summer housing. This means that you must clean, remove your belongings, and vacate your apartment by this time.Please do not check out until you are ready to depart. Door access will be terminated upon check-out.

Cleaning Instructions
In order to avoid cleaning charges make sure to clean your room/apartment thoroughly. We strongly recommend discussing cleaning responsibilities with your roommate(s).

Furniture
Students do not need to change the current configuration of their beds (bunked, junior lofted, etc.), however, beds must be properly assembled and all furniture provided must be in the room upon check out to avoid damage charges.

Submit your Maintenance Requests Now
If you are aware of items in need of repair in your room or apartment, please submit an online Maintenance Request for these items now. Your room/apartment will be inspected after you move out and you will be charged for any damages, missing items and/or cleaning. Normal wear and tear items will not result in a charge.

Silent Hours are in Effect During Final Exams
As you know, your classmates expect an atmosphere conducive to sleep and study, especially during this time of the year. Silent hours will be posted in your buildings and Resident Assistants are expected to be particularly sensitive to noise levels. Violations of University and Housing policy will result in judicial action which may include your immediate eviction, cancellation of your housing contract, and/or referral of your case to the Dean of Students Office.

Do you have items you no longer need?
If you have personal belongings you no longer need, there will be collection containers in the Community Center where you may discard canned food items, clean clothing, school supplies and household items in good working condition. These items will be donated to charitable organizations in the Green Bay community. We are unable to accept electronics (TV’s, computers, cell phones, etc…). Electronics must be turned over to a registered electronics collector for disposal. E-waste collection locations can be found here: http://dnr.wi.gov/wastemgmt/wm/wmexternal/ShellReportViewer.aspx?RID=14

Graphic Design Intern, Neil Ropson, Wins ADDY Award

University of Wisconsin – Green Bay Residence Life graphic design intern Neil Ropson’s work can be seen all over campus. But Ropson’s work has gotten him noticed by more than just UWGB students.

Ropson was the recipient of a student silver ADDY Award which is presented by the American Advertising Awards. A silver ADDY award is “considered outstanding and worthy of recognition.”

The American Advertising Awards is the advertising industry’s largest, most representative competition that consists of two national competitions: one for professionals and one for college students. To be qualified for the competition, the student has to be enrolled in a US educational institution and the work must be created during the student’s duration of schooling before they are working in the advertising industry.

While any student may enter the contest as long as they pay the entry fee, Ropson may not have entered if it was not for a professor recognizing his work.

“My design professor, Toni Damkoehler, always encouraged me to submit my work to competitions so if it hadn’t been for her I would have never won this award,” Ropson said.

Judges are selected at random and use a scoring process to make their decisions. The panel of judges evaluate the most creative entry in each category to see all the creative content of the work.

At the award ceremony, attendees are able to view all the work before ceremony starts. The President of the local AD Fed Club announced the winners. There were six award winners this year from the Fox River AD club, with four recipients coming from UWGB. Three gold awards and two silver awards were presented.

“I really pushed myself this year to aim for the ADDY award specifically,” Ropson said, “It was in my mind a way to prove to myself that I could design and a symbol that all my hard work had paid off.”
