Have a Great Summer

Thanks for a great year everybody! Good luck on the rest of your finals and have a great summer! Don’t be afraid to say hi if you see me around next year.



Walkin’ on Sunshine

As you are getting ready to leave and enjoy summer, I hope you remember to be smart about the sun. Even though most people don’t like putting on sunscreen it is important for the health of your skin. Besides sunscreen it is important to keep yourself hydrated, wear the right kind of hats and find some shade during the day. Go checkout this bulletin for some quick reminders on how to be safe this summer!

Enjoy your summer!


Tye Dye

It was a gorgeous day this past Saturday! Thanks to all yall that took the time to come tye dye socks and shirts with us. There were tons of colors to pick from and lots of ways to design the tye dye. It was super cool to see each of you make a different design and pick the colors that represented each of you. Everyones shirts and socks turned out unique and it was awesome to see!

Good luck studying everyone!


Dinner with the Professor!

Thank you to all who were able to come enjoy some hot dogs and Brats with Dale Henze! It seemed like everyone who attended had a good time talking with Dale and hearing some funny stories! For those of you who did catch his position here at UWP, he is a School of Education senior Lecturer. After retiring from being a middle school principal in Illinois, Dale was asked to come to Platteville to teach introductory education courses, while along the way picking a couple extra up. dale has many years of wisdom regarding the education field and he is always happy to share his experiences with his students. If you’ve had the opportunity to have him for a class, then you know this. If you currently are a student of his and want to get to know him better stop by his office, and he’ll talk your ear right off.

Again thank you to all who attended the event tonight! If you have any questions regarding Dale or want his information stop by and I can point you in his direction.



Stretching out the rest of Your Meal Plan

4 South!

As the semester comes to a close hopefully everyone did some smart meal plan budgeting, however, Some may be looking to stretch those last 5 meals for the rest of the semester!! That could be 1 and 1/2 weeks! So for some creative ideas on a dish that is generally cheap I have hung up a bulletin Board outlining these ideas! In the hall you can find some new twists on one of the cheapest meals you can buy! RAMEN! Although it may not be the healthiest dish you definitely need to make sure your body is receiving some sort of nutrition, and this may be the answer! So, as your minds continue to work hard the end of this semester, keep them fed! Possibly with one of these creative takes on the seemingly boring Ramen you can buy a ton of with one meal!

I hope no one is finding themselves out of meals yet! or that they can use this board to make the stretch to the end while keeping your bellies full!!



Catching Your Breath at The Hall Bon-Fire

Hey 4 South!

I know I saw some of you down at the fire enjoying some wonderful S’mores!! Hopefully this was as relaxing for you as it was for me. These last weeks have got everyone buckling down and pounding out all of the final assignments and buttoning up the left over projects! Last night was a perfect time to catch your breath relax and get mind ready to keep on going through this final push!! Keep it up everyone!! This time in two weeks, school will be out and some may be home or at an internship getting sometime to unwind and begin something all together new!

Lets get these final days done! But still find time to keep our minds and have some fun as well!

Art with Carole Spelic

Check out this recycled art project that we did yesterday with Carole Spelic, a professor from the art department! We took old magazines, tore them in pieces and had a little piece of each strip showing. Then we made cut out designs on black paper that was layed on top of the magazine strips so just bits and pieces of the color showed through. Everyones projects turned out super cool!

If you see Carole on campus don’t be afraid to go talk to her especially if it art related! She had lots of tips and tricks yesterday and she enjoyed sharing them with us! If you are interested in doing the art project that we did last night, want to know more about Carole, or about the art department, come talk to me and I’ll point you in the right direction!
Thanks to those of you that came to the event last night!
