Welcome to UW-Platteville

Hello everyone!

Welcome to UW-Platteville! I am very excited to have all you here, whether you are a new student or a returner. There are a lot of changes that are happening in the halls this year. A lot of new faces.

There is a lot planned for students this year. I know Homecoming is going to be a lot of fun this year. We have a lot of awesome people on staff at BWC that want to win again this year (knock on wood). Several events and activities are plan for everyone in the hall. Make sure you take the time to go meet your RA!

I hope to see everyone soon. Look out for me stopping by your door later this week. Also, look for publicity for our first wing meeting!

Drunk Goggles with Officer Osborne

Teaming up with Beth, the awesome RA from 3 East, we put on an awesome program in which we discussed drunk driving, and then tried to simulate the feeling of drunk driving while playing Mario Kart with drunk goggles.

It was hilarious!

And educational.

Officer Osborne told us that 2000 people drive under the influence. It’s really bad. He said it’s usually at night (of course). He also said that if you are coming back drunk from downtown, or anywhere, and ask for an escort, you will not be written up; for, you are taking action to make sure you make it back safely.

Now, while playing Mario Kart was highly entertaining, it was also a great learning experience. The main complaint of everyone was the blurry vision that caused you to overreach and miss-see the screen. Image that while you’re driving on the road. A pedestrian could look to be several feet away when really you are about to plow right into them.

The event isn’t to discourage drinking – it’s to encourage drinking responsibly. Know your limits. If you don’t feel like you can get yourself home, call the police and have them help you.

The police aren’t out to get you. They just want to make sure you stay safe.

Planning to do this event next year!

Things to Look Forward to in 2017

Well, 2016 was something. Good and bad things happened. In the end, the year ended.

So, if you need some cheering up, or just something to read, head over to the elevator bay and see some things that are happening in 2017. There are a lot of great things happening in 2017 that would make everyone happy…or slightly confused.

One of these things are the first head transplant. Yes, I said head transplant.
