WELCOME TO Pickard HALL
Pickard Hall, named after Josiah L. Pickard and built in 1969, houses approximately 169 men and 106 females and is located in “The Circle." Very popular with first year students, Pickard Hall provides a close community atmosphere for its residents. Starting in the fall of 2013, Pickard Hall will be hosting a First Year Experience Interest Community (To learn more about Interest Communities, click here).
The structure of Pickard is unique in that it has a center stairwell in addition to those at the east and west ends of the building. The study lounges and main lobby of Pickard were updated with new seating and tables in the spring of 2012. New mini fridges were placed in all of the student rooms in the spring of 2011 and spring of 2012.
Pickard Hall sponsors an annual "Fright Fest" haunted house-type activity at Halloween as a charity fundraiser. This event is open not only to UW-Platteville students, but to community members as well. Every spring the Resident Assistant staff host a Murder Mystery event during which the residents get to listen to a mock trial and decide the guilt or innocence of each member of the RA staff with prizes awarded to residents who guess correctly.

Welcome to March, Pickard Residents!
There is quite a bit going on here on campus in March. Hopefully all of you have been studying hard for all of your classes as most professors will be giving midterms during the first two weeks of the month. Registration for Fall 2014 classes will be coming up starting on Monday, March 31. Be sure to set up a meeting with your academic advisor well in advance of your registration time so you can get the classes you want for next semester.
I imagine that most all of you are looking forward to Spring Break happening this month from the March 15 through March 23. Be aware that Pickard Hall will close at 6:00 PM on Friday, March 14 and will not reopen until 12:00 PM on Sunday, March 23. Please be safe and enjoy your weeklong break from classes.
If you have not paid your room deposit for next year, please do so as soon as possible. Please either pay online through the reservation system or bring in your check to the Office of Residence Life. Your room reservation is not complete without payment and you may lose your housing preference if you do not pay your deposit in full.
Coming up on April 1 we will be hosting our Annual Murder Mystery. This program is essentially like playing a lifelike game of Clue. You will have an opportunity to view the evidence of the crime, watch the trial, and make your best as to which of the staff is guilty. For those who correctly solve this mystery, prizes will be awarded. We hope to see you in the TV Lounge for the event.
