Why did I choose to become a hall director?
From the beginning of my student life experience as a resident assistant and a career service intern, I knew I thrived in a student-centered environment and loved having a presence on campus where even people I didn't know personally would come up and ask me for help. Since Spring 2016 I have explored various focus areas on campuses, and Residence Life drew me back due to the community and support of students.
Why did I choose to work Res Life at UNH?
Living in seven different states across America, I always loved the community and culture of New England. After learning about the community and educational values at UNH, I recognized a similar environment I thrived in as a student. Students who have fun, while also being educationally challenged; who will come back from classes to a building of friends, amazing resident assistants, and cheerful hall directors.
What advice would you give to students?
Find your community: Friends who are positive influences, mentors amongst professors and supervisors, and an academic program that supports you as a student and your values. If something doesn't feel right don't be afraid to move across campus the next year, stop by and say hi at staff and faculty offices, and take classes that may be outside your initial scope.
