Welcome Back Southwest Hall!
I hope you had time over the break to relax and refuel for this upcoming semester! With spring comes many new opportunities to continue to make your time here at UW-Platteville a positive one. Many people take part in New Year’s resolutions to try and better themselves. If you weren’t happy with the fall semester, making some new semester resolutions is a great place to start. Consider getting more involved in the hall—attend an RA program, stop by a suite forum meeting, or get to know more people on your wing. Check out a new club or organization you’ve been interested in. Or perhaps, check out tutoring services to get a jump on your school work.
Southwest Hall is really coming back together after last summer’s tornado! The last of the furniture to be delivered will be in the coming weeks. That means that the Community Room and the lobby should be all set. We also will be having a mural installed in the Community Room to as well as a new TV! Be on the lookout for the new additions to the hall.
RA interviews will be held in Southwest again this year the last week of January. Many of the lounges as well as the lobby and Multipurpose rooms will be used for interviews. Be sure to be polite while interviews are in process.
Suite Forum this semester has moved to a new night! Be sure to come down to the Multipurpose Room at 9:30 each Monday evening to attend the meetings. There is a ton of important information that is shared at these meetings that will be beneficial for you to know. As an added bonus, by attending suite forum meetings you can gain points for your wing towards Wing Wars!
