Residence Hall Director - Brooks College

What is your favorite part about being a Residence Hall Director?

My favorite part about being a Residence Hall Director is the meaningful relationships I get to build with the staff and students. I am daily surrounded by incredible people who strive to serve each other and work together to create a community that feels like a family. After returning from a semester break, I have often heard students say they were excited to be back home with their Brooks Residential College community.

What does authentic Christian community mean to you?

Our Brooks College Community Covenant really exemplifies authentic Christian community to me; 'We, the members of Brooks College, seek to live meaningful lives by learning to know and love our Creator, ourselves, and our community. We unite ourselves in the pursuit of intellectual, moral, and spiritual excellence, and we pledge to honor the foundational Christian faith of this institution. We cherish life as a gift and sacred stewardship, and we accept the duty to nurture self-understanding, personal integrity, and authenticity in all that we do. We commit ourselves to the ideal of charity, embracing the responsibilities of life together, offering service without expectation of return, remaining loyal amidst difficulty, and upholding the traditions of our college and university.'
