Assistant Hall Directors

The Assistant Hall Director (AHD) AHD job is a crucial part of our Residential Life system. AHDs assist the Hall Director in each of our large halls with staff supervision and training as well as advising the hall council.

"How’s it going Wildcats and friends?! My name is Liliana Daly, but everyone calls me Lili. I am the AHD of Stoke Hall! I’m a senior Psychology major with a minor in Business Administration. My years at UNH have been wonderful and filled with many opportunities! I was an RA for the past two years- first in Christensen Hall, and then Devine Hall within the Upper Quad. Along with being an RA, I have attended Leadership Camp, been an orientation leader, become a brother of Alpha Phi Omega, participated in a medical trip in Nicaragua, lead an alternative spring break trip to Louisiana and I am currently Co-Director of the uLead team and a tour guide. In my down time I love to hang out with friends on T-Hall lawn or explore Durham and the surrounding areas! Any experience is a good experience! #ProtectThePalace"  -Liliana Daly - Stoke Hall

I can’t wait for the new experiences I’ll have and people I’ll meet this year as AHD in Williamson!" - Renee Loeffel -Williamson Hall
