FROM THE DESK OF THE RESIDENT DIRECTOR
We are off to a great start to the year! I hope your classes started out well and things are going smoothly. If you are looking for some resources on how to manage that math class or writing class or maybe are just thinking you want some helpful direction on some of those tougher classes, start now with Tutoring Services. They can do way more now, then in November or December. If you need help getting information about this, please see your RA or check out this website: https://www.uwplatt.edu/academic-support

If you have not seen some of our Safety information here it is:
- Safety Tip of the Month: Prevention is key to remain safe on campus. Be sure to report any suspicious behavior to University Police. Take some time this month to review the Shots Fired video provided to you on the University Police website. This video talks in depth about how to remain safe should an active shooter situation occur here at Platteville.
I would like to direct your attention to a short video hosted by UW-Platteville's Residence Life Department regarding Sexual Assault. It is my expectation that each of you view this video to be aware of how you and/or your peers can be affected by sexual assault. The intent of this video is to educate and to bring awareness to a very real and impactful topic. If you have been sexually assaulted and would like to talk with someone, please see your Resident Assistant, Resident Director, or any of the support offices featured in this video. The statistics sited in the video reflect UW-Platteville's 2015 Campus Climate Report.
Please click here to view the video. There are other resources available on the Residence Life website as well and you are encouraged to view those resources in the event you will ever need to access this information.
As always please feel free to contact me or the staff with questions or concerns you have.
