What are your hobbies? My favorite thing is simply being around people. I love classic Rom-Coms, board games and watching shows like New Girl, Parks and Rec, and The Office. I’ve always been interested in music and love singing, dancing, and attending concerts with friends. In my downtime, you can typically find me taking BuzzFeed quizzes, online shopping, or enjoying a nice bowl of BlueBell ice cream.
How many years have you been in Residence Life? I worked in Residence Life at OBU for 3 years as a student, but this is my first year as a Resident Director!
What is your favorite part about being in this field? I love Residence Life because it is where, as a student, you learn so many lessons, make so many memories, and grow in a way that is different from any other experience. I am so excited that I get the opportunity to live alongside and invest in college students as they are learning to live with new people, find community away from home and as they build friendships that will last them a lifetime. I have a huge desire to know students, to serve them, and to love them as Christ does!
What advice would you give prospective students coming to HSU? LIVE IT UP. Get involved on campus, ask for help, get to know the faculty and staff, make time for school and for fun. HSU has so many opportunities for you to learn and succeed here, don’t take these for granted! Make sure to explore Abilene and get involved in not only HSU’s community but the community of Abilene as well. These four years will go by so much faster than you realize, so be present where you are in the good times and even in the stressful times.
