UW-Eau Claire Students May
Select Substance-Free Housing
MAILED: Feb. 14, 2001

          EAU CLAIRE — The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire residence halls again will offer students the choice to live in substance-free wings during the 2001-02 academic year.
          Students currently residing in the residence halls may reapply for housing Feb. 27-28. Substance-free housing — which prohibits alcohol and smoke (cigarette and incense) — is available in the following locations: Horan Hall (1st floor south), Oak Ridge Hall (2nd floor west), Bridgman Hall (1st floor east and west) and Towers Hall-North (2nd floor north and south).
          “I am very pleased that our substance-free wings continue to be a good choice for our students who choose not to be bothered by the secondhand effects of drinking,” said Jodi Thesing-Ritter, Towers Hall-North residence hall director. “I am also proud that for fall 2000 these wings recorded the highest GPA in each of the four halls where they are located. Our students choosing to live a substance-free lifestyle are reaping the benefits of that choice.”
          Contact Thesing-Ritter, (715) 836-3327 or thesinjm@uwec.edu, for more information about substance-free living in UW-Eau Claire residence halls.
