Best residence life memories from my own college days: The little things that happened each day, like going to chapel with my wing, eating meals, watching movies and just doing life together. Of course, winning the Coly Christmas Bash decorating contest and an occasional intramural trophy were good memories too.
Favorite meal at the caf’: I'm always excited when BBQ pulled-pork sandwiches are on the menu.
Favorite music: Coldplay, The Civil Wars, Matt Nathanson, Adele, and Mumford and Sons all get a lot of play on my iPod.
The best thing about my job is … I get to live alongside Northwestern students. I love being able to be part of their lives during such an important and formative time. Being part of discussions of faith, learning and God's plans for their futures is a special thing for me.
The best thing about Northwestern students is … they are always looking for ways to live out their faith as students and preparing to do the same as they graduate and pursue their life's vocation. It's a perspective on life and work that makes Northwestern students special.
