Our first Summer Housing Assistant taking the spotlight is senior Kellyn Wieland. Although Kellyn has worked within Residence Life for a year, this is her first time in the SHA position.
Kellyn coveted this position as a chance to learn more about working in Residence Life.
“I never knew about the RA aspect of Residence Life, so this was my chance to explore a new opportunity,” Kellyn said.
Working as a SHA, Kellyn gets to experience a little bit of everything that Residence Life has to offer: working the front desk, mailroom and as an RA to all summer residents including all students and guests.
“I am looking forward to talking with the Snowbirds,” Kellyn said, “I feel like I could learn a lot from them!”
Snowbirds are the older guests that live on campus during the summer.
Living on campus during the school year and summer lets Kellyn stay close to her friends, class and work.
“I love being so close to everything. There is always something to do with all the programs that are put on by the many organizations around campus!” Kellyn said.
Welcome to the SHA staff, Kellyn. We are very excited to have you with us!
