A Word From The Associate Dean…


As I write this, I am about to leave for the annual international housing conference in
sunny Orlando, FL. I always enjoy this conference, as I am able to reconnect with
friends and professional housing staff from around the world. You will return to
campus in early August where you will blaze the “RAgon Trail.” This will be a fun filled
educational week. You will have the opportunity to reconnect with old friends and
forge new friendships. By the end of training you will be prepared to welcome
residents to your floors and wings, develop a great community and handle whatever
may come your way throughout the year. I would like to thank Tara Huss, McCormick
Hall Assistant Hall Director and Megan Yeo, Cobeen Hall Director for all of their
dedication. They have worked tirelessly to create your training experience. So for
now, rest, relax, and enjoy the sunshine. Join us in Milwaukee, August 9th with great
attitudes, open minds and a spirit of care so that the 2008 -09 academic year will be
one to remember on the “RAgon Trail!”
Mary Janz
