Wilgus Hall is specifically unique because is an all-women’s residence hall. This living option offers a terrific opportunity for women to build a close community within the hall. Each floor features a kitchenette and lounge area for the convenience of its residents. Wilgus hall has a newly renovated basement with study rooms, a computer room, laundry facility, ice machine, and offers The Lynn Collins Conference Room that features a TV and a kitchen in a large meeting and dining area. The conference area is well utilized throughout the year by many organizations on campus.
Wilgus Hall sponsors an annual Women’s Weekend and Holiday Party. This event is open not only to UW-Platteville students, but to community members as well. The Holiday Party is the highlight event of Wilgus Hall that residents and the community looks forward to every year.
New this academic school year 2012-1013, Wilgus Hall is currently hosting The Women in STEM Learning Community. This is an exciting community for women interested in any of the Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) programs at UW-Platteville. The WiSTEM Living Learning Community, located on the 1st floor of Wilgus Hall, is focused on providing a nurturing environment for residents to build connections with each other and with faculty and professionals (To learn more about Living Learing Communities, click here). Students will build a strong support network in academics and everyday life. This is a wonderful way to help foster an exciting college experience.
From the Desk of the Resident Director
Hello ladies and happy spring!
With the end of the semester approaching soon, there will be a great deal of information coming your way in the next few weeks. Your RA has provided you with the procedures you will need to complete to check out of the building at the end of the school year. Along with the information your RA has explained to you, there will be several advertisements placed on your wing to help you keep track of everything you need to do. The staff and I hope to make the checkout process as efficient for you as possible so please be sure to read these postings and check your email regularly for more information.
With the weather slowly warming up, many people are beginning to use their bicycles for transportation across campus. Please remember that bicycles must remain outside and are not to be stored in student rooms. Also, any bicycles that are stored or locked up in non-designated areas will be confiscated, chains/locks will be cut, and a $25 fine will be required to retrieve the bicycle from Auxiliary Services Facilities Operations.
Are you interested in helping welcome the fall 2013 residents of Wilgus Hall and receiving a free tshirt? If so, you are in luck because Wilgus is accepting applications for members of its Fall 2013 Welcome Crew. Talk to your RA to get an application and you can join in on the fun!
