Welcome to Dobson Hall
Dobson Hall, named after George R. Dobson and built in 1965, provides a living environment for men and women. Dobson is one of the larger residence halls on campus with approximately 320 residents and contains a music room that has a piano for student use. The hall is very active in hall and campus sponsored events. Each fall Dobson staff and residents host Trick or Treat, a safe Halloween event for the children and their families in the Platteville community. Over 300 families participate each year. During the spring semester, Dobson hosts Jail N Bail, an annual charity event, where students can "arrest" their friends and hall staff. The charities for the event are selected each year by the Dobson Hall Forum, the hall governance group.
From the Desk of the Resident Director
The semester has begun and you have a whole week under your belts already! If you looking for some fun and exciting things to during this long weekend check out our Facebook page and all the weekend events that are posted. See the bottom right hand ad for liking us on Facebook.
Additionally every Friday night is accompanied by a Friday Night Club event. The September FNC’s are Kickball with Hugunin & Porter (9/4), Glow in the Dar Disc Golf with Morrow (9/11), Fire & Night Yard Games with Melcher (9/18), and Apple Fest with Porter (9/25). Saturday’s check out CPR events!
Homecoming happens from October 4th to October 10th this year, and the overall theme is "UW-Platteville Adventure is Out There." Each year Dobson participates as a co-ed team for all events. This year we are excited to be hosting/sponsoring the Food Fight event and may need your help to make the event successful! If you want to get involved be sure to check your email, check our Facebook page and come down to Hall Forum - its great fun and a wonderful chance to meet fellow Pioneers!
If you are looking for other ways to get involved within Dobson Hall, stop by Hall Forum on Wednesday Sept. 10th and ask your RA. Every hall on campus has their own Hall Forum which is a great resource for bringing residents together, working towards improving the hall, and building leadership skills within the participants. The money to support this and all programing done in the hall is through your Activity Membership, please consider paying the $15 for the year to get one now and support all the great events Dobson has to offer. Dobson Hall Forum has one Co-Chair for our four person Leadership Team this year and is looking for people to serve as hall leaders. Please consider joining this worthwhile organization. If you have questions, please contact your RA.
I hope that you are getting to know your wing/building mates and that you are enjoying your first month of college. Please feel free to stop in and say to me in my office!
Have a great September, Pioneers!
