Best residence life memories from my own college days: During my senior year, we had a Christmas tree up in our room almost all year—it became a Halloween tree, Thanksgiving tree, engagement tree—and a few other things.

Favorite meal at the caf’: Taco salad

Favorite music: Bluegrass, easy-listening music

The best thing about my job is … getting paid to hang out with people I want to hang out with anyway!

The best thing about Northwestern students is … their love for traditions and practical jokes—all in the pursuit of building community.
