We are already in February, can you believe it? It is a very busy month all over the campus and for the Department of Residence Life.
A big thing to note is room reservation for the 2016-2017 school year begins on February 8th. Please click here for more information regarding sign up. Just a reminder, UW-Platteville has a two year residency requirement. Students who are currently freshman will be held responsible for signing up for a room for next fall.
February is also Black History Month: There are plenty of ways to celebrate Black History Month on campus and within the hall. Also attend Ebony Weekend events Feb 5-7th. For more details on Ebony Weekend please click here.
With the start of new classes this spring, make sure you are putting the right foot forward in your academics. Check out turoring options here for any assistance you may need in your classes!
Hall Forum has switched to Tuesday this semester. We also relocated to the West Lobby. So stop on by the West Lobby on Tuesdays at 9:15 to receive information on what's happening around campus.
As we continue to receive more snow this month, keep an eye out for any Snow Emergency for Parking (SEP) called so you know when to move your vehicle for snow removal.
