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

Anywhere a community of learners gather is a place I want to be. Unlike any other space on campus, the residence hall provides a community of people who will support, challenge, and walk alongside you as you learn. As a Residence Hall Director, I love being a part of this growth as it occurs.

What does authentic Christian community mean to you?

An authentic Christian community requires two things. First, the members of the community must see each other fully. They see their peers as dynamic and able to change. As a result, the community invites everyone in it to be themselves—their beautiful, broken selves. Second, a shared identity in Christ, from whom our true selves are redeemed and completed, establishes the foundation for the community. Without Christ at the center, an authentic Christian community can never be achieved.
