Best residence life memories from my own college days: Living in community with friends—whether it was eating together, having late night conversations about faith and life, watching the Price is Right or March Madness, playing games, or late night Perkins runs. Those are some of my favorite memories while at college. Other highlights were the Coly Christmas Bash, Coly Curling, the Hog Roast and Coly Olympics.

Favorite meal at the caf’: I'm not picky, but you can't go wrong with the great options in the salad bar.

Favorite music: Milk Carton Kids, Gregory Isakov, Damien Jurado, Bon Iver, Mumford and Sons, Iron and Wine, The National

The best thing about my job is … living alongside students in their day-to-day lives and being a part of their development as students and individuals.

The best thing about Northwestern students is … their desire to use their gifts and education to be a part of what God is doing in this world, here on campus and when they graduate.
