Happy October from Southwest Hall!
Wow, the past month sure has flown by and we are well on our way to a very successful semester here in Southwest Hall. I have had so much fun getting to know the residents of Southwest Hall, we truly have a great group of students here!
With October typically comes an increase in your academic load. We are fast approaching the midpoint of the semester, how are you doing academically? Did you know that UW-Platteville offers a bunch of FREE or very reasonable resources? Whether you are struggling with a paper or needing some more assistance with a class, be sure to know what is out there and available to you! Nearly 50% of our student body is eligible for free tutoring through Student Support Services and never take advantage of it. You can stop by their office in 111 Warner Hall to see if you are eligible. Also the Writing and Tutoring Resource Center (WATR) is a phenomenal resource located on the 3rd floor of Brigham Hall. They provide free help with any writing project by appointment and very cheap one on one tutoring. Don’t struggle with classes this semester, use your resources and make this your best semester yet!
Southwest Hall Suite Forum is busy once again! We have 4 new executive board members this year and they are excited and ready for a great year. They have already held several informational meetings thus far this year and will be putting on monthly social events for the hall. For more information on what Suite Forum is up to, check out the signage posted around the hall. We welcome all residents of Southwest Hall to attend meetings. Meetings are held on Wednesday evenings at 9:00 PM in the Multipurpose Room. Come check us it out!
There has been a number of questions out there regarding repairs from tornado affected areas in the building. I can assure you that we are aware of the work that still needs to be done and we are certainly working on it! If you have questions or concerns regarding anything with this, please be sure to stop down and talk to me. I am interested in your concerns and giving you more information as I am able to.
If you have not done so yet, be sure to stop down in my office and introduce yourself. If you have any questions about campus resources or getting involved with Suite Forum, please do stop by!
