Welcome to Melcher Hall
Melcher Hall, named after Milton L. Melcher, was built in 1966 and is home for approximately 255 men. Melcher Hall residents are active in numerous campus and community events. This year, Melcher Hall residents get to celebrate the building’s 50th year in operation with some exciting new rennovations to the building, including a recently renovated Party/Game Room and basement, which includes a newer kitchen for special meals, television area, new pool table, new ice machine, and a specialized meeting area.
From the Desk of the Resident Director
Greetings, Melcher Hall!
March is upon us, and it's sure to be an action-packed month! With a ton of events coming up, like Spring Break, Midterm Exams, applying for Summer jobs and more, it's sure to be busy! Check out the info below to prepare you for March.
SEP: With the potential for snow around every corner, UW-Platteville has entered into our Snow Emergency Parking (SEP) months. During a declared "Snow Emergency", specific lots will have to be cleared on specific days. If a Snow Emergency is declared, you will be notified in three ways: 1) an email will be sent to your student email, 2) Signs will appear around the hall, and 3) RA staff will make an attempt to contact residents to alert them.
Spring Break: Spring Break is right around the corner! Keeping that info in mind, remember that Melcher Hall is CLOSED FOR SPRING BREAK. Card access will be shut down over break, and the building will be locked up tight. If you're heading home for spring break, now is a great time to pack up some of the items in your room that you dont' use anymore! If you do, it will make checkout much easier later this Semester.
Midterms: With midterm exams right around the corner, now is a great time to chat with professors about your grades! If you aren't quite where you want to be (or would like some extra assistance), head over to Academic Support Programs on the third floor of Brigham! They have plenty of resources that are sure to be a great help!
Summer Jobs: Are you looking to make some extra cash this Summer? Dont' forget to apply for a summer job on campus! We have plenty of openings, all of which can be found online on the Financial Aid webpage!
Safety Tip of the Month: As we approach spring, inclement weather will become more common. Be sure to remain aware of potential for severe weather. In the case of severe weather, be sure to seek out appropriate shelter if your hall. Avoid windows and do not go outside to storm watch.
As always, stop by my office anytime to chat! I'm looking forward to having a great semester with all of you!
