2015-16 Residential Life Staff Photo - Beginning of the Year

Tolu Taiwo, Resident Director for Hong and Hinderlie Halls: “I absolutely love my PLU Residential Life family! As a first-year Resident Director, I was nervous to move to a new state and start my first full-time professional job. However, everyone in the office welcomed me warmly, and supported me personally and professionally! I can definitely say I’ve gained some close friends from the department. The other RDs and Central Office staff are hands down some of the best people I have ever met in my life, and I am extremely lucky to work with them.”

Melissa Williams, Resident Director for Harstad Hall:Being an RD at PLU is different from my past experiences in residence life. Due to our tight knit group and small staff we are able to actively participate and plan in all aspects of the housing and residence life process. From hand matching roommates and placing them in buildings to creating the trainings we use with staff and advising the Residence Hall Councils (RHC’s) no two days are ever the same.
