Welcome to Dobson Hall
Dobson Hall, named after George R. Dobson and built in 1965, provides a living environment for men and women. Dobson is one of the larger residence halls on campus with approximately 320 residents. The hall is very active in hall and campus sponsored events. Dobson Hall hosts multiple Living and Learning Communities.
The benefits of living within a Living Learning Community (LLC):
Enhanced academic and social opportunities
Improved grade point average
Greater involvement in learning
Increased satisfaction with your UW-Platteville experience
Friendships with classmates who may be in the same classes and programs
Stronger academic relationships and better connections with faculty members
The Living Learning Communities hosted within Dobson Hall are, Criminal Justice, Explore EMS, Women in Stem, and Education.
Each fall Dobson staff and residents host Trick or Treat, a safe Halloween event for the children and their families in the Platteville community.
DESK OF THE DIRECTOR
Over the summer, you will be receiving a series of e-mail letters to inform you of important topics, policy reminders, and ways to prepare for your college experience.
If you have not done so already – remember to register for New Student Registration (NSR). NSR is a day for new students and their parents/guests to learn more about the transition to UW-Platteville. Students will also register for classes with the assistance of faculty, staff and peer advisors. NSR is your first official day as a UW-Platteville Pioneer.
As a college student, you are in control of you educational experience, this includes anything from your grades to your involvement in clubs and organizations. The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) will be important for you to understand, and discuss with your legal guardians.
Access. A student is permitted certain rights regarding their education records:
• Right to inspect and review their educational records;
• Right to request an amendment to the records if they believes there is an inaccuracy;
• Right to restrict the release of the student's Directory Information from public access;
• Right to file a complaint with the U.S. Department of Education if they feels UW-Platteville has failed to follow FERPA guidelines.
Confidentiality. School officials must protect the privacy of education records and shall not disclose personally identifiable information about a student or permit inspection of the student's records without his/her written consent unless such action is permitted by the act.
Don't forget to take a look at our Residence Hall Handbook and become familiar with the policies and procedures.
