Residential Life Professional Staff

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.

Kat Slaby, Resident Director for Hong and Hinderlie Halls:This is currently my third year working at PLU, and one thing that I find unique amongst this staff is how close knit we are. Moving from the Midwest was a bit of an adjustment and something that I was nervous about! The Resident Directors and the Central Office staff swooped me right in to make sure I was adjusting to the Pacific Northwest culture and that I was finding my way and my fit at PLU. The Resident Director group is basically my family! We are all extremely supportive of one another and are constantly doing things outside of the office as well.
