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 and contains a music room that has a piano for student use. The hall is very active in hall and campus sponsored events. Each fall Dobson staff and residents host Trick or Treat, a safe Halloween event for the children and their families in the Platteville community. Over 300 families participate each year. During the spring semester, Dobson hosts Jail N Bail, an annual charity event, where students can "arrest" their friends and hall staff. The charities for the event are selected each year by the Dobson Hall Forum, the hall governance group.
From the Desk of the Resident Director
Hello Dobson Friends!
Women In STEM Week is this week! If you have not heard check out the posters on the LLC wings on 2nd floor for details! We have a panel discussion Wednesday, March 05, 2014 at 7:30pm in the basement you won’t want to miss.
March is going to fly by this year, so make sure you are keeping track of everything happening! Spring break starts Friday March 14th. The building closes at 6p.m. so make sure you have made arrangements for travel and somewhere to stay during spring break. The building will re-open on March 23rd at noon. Please contact your RA or myself if you have any questions regarding the building closing. For extra details see the Check List for Spring Break here.
Advising for classes is coming up very quickly! Make an appointment with your advisor and ask for advice on your class schedule for fall 2014. You must meet with your advisor before you can schedule for classes. If you have questions ask an RA, they have to schedule too.
Remember don’t forget to reserve a room for next fall and pay your pre-payment. The UW-System has a two year residency requirement, so you want to make sure you submit your rooming preferences in time! If you have questions about the requirement or sign up, please go here or ask your RA or myself.
As always there are a lot of great events happening on campus so make sure you check the campus calendar accordingly.
Spring is coming . . . not sure when, but coming none the less!
Have wonderful and safe spring breaks!
