Would you rather?

The “Would You Rather” board will be up all year. I will keep changing it out every couple of weeks to keep things interesting. Be sure to stop down and move the clothes pin with your name on it. This is just a fun way to get people out of their room and a chance to get to know your neighbors. If you have any ideas for a question, let me know.




Hello Everyone!

Welcome to, or welcome back to UWP!  I hope you had a great summer, whether you were working or just enjoying vacation. I know I worked all summer so I am ready to be back at school. This is a break for me from work. Check out my DIY page, where I will be posting cool projects that I have tried or you can try on your own!  If you every have any problems, or questions, feel free to stop by.

Aluminum Can Drive

Residents of 2nd floor are collecting their aluminum cans and recycling them in the elevator bay. At the end of the year Taylor and I will travel to Platteville Middle School and donate them to their can drive. The school resells the cans and uses the funds to rebuild their playground, fund programs and plays, and other activities that occur in the middle school. Not only are we stressing the importance of recycling, but we are also giving back to the community.

Star Gazing at the M

Last night was great. Thanks everyone for coming out to make the Lyrid Meteor Shower such a fun event. Residents of Southwest carpooled to the M to hang out and star gaze at the top. We found Jupiter, the Big Dipper and the Lyra constellation where the meteors were coming from. Too bad the northern lights werent visible for us. I learned a thing or two about the orbiting satellites and residents learned about a few constellations with Angela’s cool astronomy app on her phone.
