Letter from Custodial Services
As many of you were enjoying some well deserved time away from campus, we were here preparing for the fall semester. Additionally, we were figuring out how to maintain the high standard of cleanliness expected at UW-Eau Claire with three fewer positions — a result of state budget cuts.

I assure you that we still will be able to support UW-Eau Claire’s academic mission by providing a clean, comfortable learning environment. However, it will be more difficult. All of you can help by supporting the practice of no food or drink, except water, in the classrooms, labs and library. Also, please remind students to use the recycling/trash bins in the hallways.

After reviewing the cleaning needs and associated activities that make up our mission, we determined that the campus would be best served by taking a position out of McPhee, Hibbard and McIntyre Library. This will impact all buildings, because we will need to send floaters to these buildings more often to cover for crew members who are sick or on vacation.

Here is the cleaning you can expect from custodial services:
Public places — entrances, halls, restrooms, classrooms and labs are cleaned five days per week. Department and administrative offices are cleaned five days per week. Faculty and other single occupant offices are scheduled to be cleaned once per week.

Custodial Services is available to respond to emergencies and other concerns. We can be reached at 836-5817 (office) at 271-0857 (cell phone). Go to top of page

Wellness classes to be offered
University Recreation offers a wide variety of workshops and non-credit classes that relate primarily to health, fitness and nutrition. The program offerings are available to UW-Eau Claire faculty, staff and students for a nominal registration fee. Every effort is made to ensure that these courses and workshops meet the current interests of participants and are taught by qualified instructors. Class descriptions and registration information can be viewed online. Go to top of page

Tickets available for annual art trip to Chicago
The art & design department's annual trip to Chicago is planned for Oct. 23-26. The trip will include visits to museums in Chicago and Milwaukee. Tickets, available at the Service Center until Oct. 6, are $150 and include three nights at the Cass hotel in downtown Chicago (double rooms), round trip coach and group entry into the Chicago Museum of Contemporary Art and the Milwaukee Art Museum.

Office/telephone etiquette workshop for students set for Oct. 7
A free one-hour workshop for student assistants in basic office and telephone etiquette will be held Oct. 7 from 11 a.m. to noon, with a repeat session from 1 to 2 p.m. the same day in the Ojibwa Room of Davies Center. Topics will include greeting visitors effectively, answering the telephone properly, transferring phone calls, taking phone messages appropriately and portraying a professional image. For more information or to register, contact Barbara Bowers at bowersba@uwec.edu. The registration deadline is Sept. 30. Go to top of page

Leaders seminar for students to be offered
The Established and Emerging Leaders Seminar, running Oct. 2 through Dec. 11 at UW-Eau Claire, is a four-part series focused on basic leadership skill development. The series provides resources to help students grow as individuals and as group members, offers a solid theoretic foundation and practical application to leadership, and enables students to become more confident and marketable.

Enrollment is open to all UW-Eau Claire students and is limited to 25 people. Applications are available at the Student Organizations Complex, Davies Center 132, and should be returned no later than Sept. 22. Full story. Go to top of page
