As I look at the calendar I can hardly believe it. April? How did that happen? So, once again, I find myself reflecting on another fast-paced academic year. I would guess that your UWGB student is looking back on these last several months with the same thought. How could this year Gail Sims-Auberthave been anything but a blur? Between the rigors of a full-time academic course load, making friends, seeking out employment and getting involved in activities/organizations, it had to have been an action-packed year. I hope along the way they have created many happy memories to take with them into the summer.

As I sit down to write this, our office is wrapping up the room selection process for the 2019-2020 year. By the looks of things, we will be ‘comfortably full’ come fall. If your student was undecided about living on campus next year and up until now has passed on the opportunity to sign a housing contract, we would still appreciate the opportunity to work with them to secure housing for the upcoming academic year. They can complete this process by visiting with the staff at the reception desk at the Community Center or by visiting our website at www.uwgb.edu/housing.

I want you to know what a pleasure it’s been to serve you and your student this year. For many of you, I know your student’s transition to college was not without challenge. Thank you for supporting them from home and know that we did our best to offer up assistance and campus resources as needed. Together we made a good team! Most of our residents will be leaving campus for the summer and returning home. Enjoy them and be sure to ask questions about all that they experienced at UWGB. I’m sure they’ll appreciate your interest. If your student would prefer to stay on campus for the summer, we can make that happen too. We may even have a job for them! Check out the entirety of this newsletter for more information.

Thanks again for your involvement this year! If your student is returning to campus housing, then we’ll be sure to catch you with these newsletters again starting in the fall. Enjoy your summer!
