University of Wisconsin-Platteville and the Surrounding Community Rebuilds

On June 16, 2014 an EF2 tornado struck the campus of the University of Wisconsin-Platteville, causing more than $10 million in damage to, most notably, two residence halls, the university football stadium and soccer stadium.   Thankfully, no one on campus was injured during the storm that also caused damage to the surrounding Platteville area. You don’t want to miss these two short inspirational videos from the Chancellor and a staff member at Rountree Commons – one of the residence halls that sustained heavy damage during the storm. Both are testaments to the Pioneer Spirit!
