Reminders for parents
Resources for off-campus housing available
The majority of UI students live off-campus, and some will sign or renew leases for the fall as early as January. To help students understand their rights and responsibilities as tenants, the University offers the following resources:
University Housing & Dining seeking volunteers to help with move-in
University Housing & Dining will need up to 200 volunteers to assist with fall 2012 move-in. “CReW” members will help first-year students and their families move into their residence hall rooms on Wednesday and Thursday, Aug. 15 and 16.
CReW members who live in the residence halls will be permitted to move into their own rooms early, on Monday, Aug. 13, at no extra cost. (Regular move-in day for returning students will be Saturday, Aug. 18.)
Students interested in joining CReW should watch for an email with details about how to sign up in March. Details will also be posted at www.liveon.uiowa.edu.
Pomerantz Career Center holding career fairs in February
Spring semester may have just begun, but summer break—or graduation—will be here before you know it. Encourage your student to meet potential employers at the Spring Job & Internship Fair on Feb. 22, or at one of the UI’s many career fairs geared toward specific majors.
