Darin Peetz of North Freedom, WI has been selected to be a resident assistant for Dobson Hall at the University of Wisconsin-Platteville for the 2011-12 academic year.
It is the job of an RA to help residents in adjusting to university life. The RA informs students of university resources and programs, works with different parts of hall government, gives and receives personal feedback, promotes an educational atmosphere, encourages involvement in campus functions and responds to personal and disciplinary concerns. RAs also work to provide students with a sense of identity, growth experiences and the feeling of responsibility toward others.
UW-Platteville is located in the southwest corner of Wisconsin. The school reached a record-breaking enrollment with 7,212 students in 2011-12 and looks to surpass that record this year. UW-Platteville provides 41 majors and 70 minors to students, as well as the Tri-State Initiative program, a tuition savings program offered only at UW-Platteville. This program offers competitive pricing for students in Wisconsin, Illinois and Iowa when annual tuition, fees, room, board and books are included.
