Rachel Olson

Graduate Assistant Residence Hall Director - Brooks Residential College

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

My favorite part is getting to know students on a personal level and being able to provide support and help students overcome struggles in all aspects of life. As the year progresses, I am able to watch and challenge students to grow in their personal, academic, social, and spiritual life and there is no better reward.

What does authentic Christian community mean to you?

Authentic Christian Community means that not only the university, but each student, staff member, and faculty member within this institution is committed to being unapologetically devoted to God. This allows students to be open about their beliefs, experiences, and any struggles they are dealing with and know that they can turn to faculty to staff for personal and spiritual support.
