Greetings Fairhaven! I am excited to work with each of you this year in creating a welcoming and supportive community in Fairhaven. I am originally from central Oregon and am delighted to be returning to the beautiful Pacific Northwest! For the past two years, I have lived in NW Ohio as I completed my master’s degree in college student personnel at Bowling Green State University. Prior to that, I attended Oregon State University where I studied English and secondary education for my undergraduate degree. Throughout my college experiences I worked with leadership development, student organizations, and campus activities. I have a passion for helping others find a connection to the campus community, discovering their potential as leaders, and making their experiences memorable. In my free time, I enjoy traveling, hiking, reading a good book, collecting inspiring quotes, and creating art. Feel free to come by and say hi or swap stories over coffee. Let's make this year, and your Western experience, a great one!
This is my fifth year here at Western. (I know, right?) I am a kinesiology pre-physical therapy major and I am just finishing up a few more classes before heading off to graduate school. I love to exercise at the gym, play and watch sports, swim, play Magic: The Gathering, and play videogames. My favorite thing about Western is that it is a great place to learn and grow. Even though I am not an RA, I would still love to get to know as many people as possible!!!! So come and say hi! I am looking forward to a great 2015-2016!
My name is Ana and I am a senior majoring in Political Science with a focus on International Relations. I am a first-generation-student as well as transfer student to WWU. One of my favorite things about Western has been the support of my professors, advisors, and peers who have helped me in transitioning. This year, I am focusing on my studies and on graduating in time. Therefore, I will not be involved as much on campus as I was last year. However when time permitting, I will be involved with the Latino Student Union and the Political Science Association. Outside of campus, I am involved with Model United Nations and have had the privilege to participate in regional, national, and international conferences through this affiliation. With that being said, I’ve had quite a few leadership opportunities both at WWU and my community college. I’ve been involved with Western’s Associated Students and would be happy to help you get involved on campus as well. I am excited to meet and work with you!
I am a sophomore here at Western Washington University. I plan on majoring in manufacturing and supply chain management. My hobbies include singing, dancing, and playing video games. I’m involved in the Filipino-American Student Association, and in Sini-GANG (a dance club on campus where dancers of any level are welcome to join/participate). My favorite thing about Western would probably have to be a tie between the campus itself (it is so beautiful!) and the people that are a part of this community. Fun facts: I love Beyonce, I am from Olympia, Wash., and my favorite food is chicken strips.
Hello friends! I am a returning sophomore at WWU and I am so excited for this year! I am planning on studying elementary education and majoring in LLC (literature, language, and cultural studies). I chose to come to Western because of the great education department, its perfect size, and all the positive things I had heard about the school from other students; I have not been disappointed. Since coming to Western, my favorite hobby has become blues dancing at Fairhaven Fusion and State Street Fusion, so you can usually find me dancing a few times a week! Other than blues dancing, I also enjoy singing, hanging out with friends, and exploring Bellingham. I am super excited to be an RA and can't wait to build more lasting memories!
I am a lover of creativity and imagination, foreseeing a future in the film industry as a screenwriter. I can discuss films for hours, so if you have a favorite movie, let's plan movie nights! I am an English major with a creative writing emphasis, as well as a film studies student. I am a junior who has had plenty of time to become comfortable at Western. The open-mindedness of the majority of people here is absolutely refreshing, and definitely my favorite thing about Bellingham. I am very involved with the campus intramural sports program, so don't be afraid to go out there and have a blast playing sports--for competition or just for fun!
Hello! I am currently a senior here at Western. I am a design major which basically means that I create graphics, illustrations, build websites, apps, and anything that involves visual communication. My hobbies basically revolve around art and music. If you don’t find me in the lab working on some digital designs, then it’s a very safe bet that I am upstairs in the Fine Arts building painting in the studio. My favorite part of Western has got to be all the trees that surround the campus. I love the city, but nothing can beat a lovely green scene. A random cool fact about myself is that I participate in Spartan races every year. It’s kind of my thing.
Hi! I am a senior here at Western and I'm from Billings, Montana. I came here in order to study marine biology and pursue an education to get a career studying the behavior of marine predators, but I’ve recently changed my major to ecology, evolution and organismal biology. My hobbies include reading and writing, outdoor activities, going to school and community events, volunteering, and just hanging out and spending time with my friends and family. I'm also currently a member of the WWU equestrian team, and I love competing in horse shows and supporting my teammates! I wanted to become an RA because I wanted to get more involved in the Western community; as a returning RA this year, I hope to help other RAs and residents do the same! One thing I love about this place is how tight-knit, friendly and supportive everyone is here, and I wanted to play a bigger role in that. I'm really outgoing and love interacting with people, strangers and friends alike, and I'm looking forward to a having a fantastic school year with you!
Hey there! I am a sophomore here at Western and I am currently trying to decide between a public relations major or political science major, but am positive I want a women’s studies minor. I play on an intramural kickball team, even though I still don’t know the rules. I like to play tennis and hike, and having two best friends on the WWU cheer team, I dance a lot. I have a heart for service projects, more specifically Special Olympics. My favorite thing about Western is that there are always opportunities to get out of your comfort zone and try something new. Life is a rollercoaster here. I love seeing new faces, so do not hesitate to drop by and say hello!
I am a Junior this year in the manufacturing supply chain management and Chinese language and culture programs. I spent this summer studying Chinese language in Kunming, China, and the summer before that at a salmon cannery in Alaska. I am interested always in a new challenge, so if you ever need a chess, pool, Settlers of Catan, Risk, Monopoly, or foosball opponent, you are in luck! I also enjoy spending time in the weight room and on the track. I am very passionate about my studies. My favorite thing about Western may be the amount of opportunities I have to meet great people and try new things. I am excited to be returning as a second year RA and to get to know everybody moving in!
Hello everyone! My name is Kyle, and I’m the RA of stack 8 in Fairhaven. I’m a senior this year and I’m majoring in psychology. When I’m not working or studying, you may find me playing guitar and singing, or in the Fairhaven game room playing pool. I love Western’s friendly culture, and I try to maintain that culture by always being approachable. If you ever have a question, serious or not, that you want me to answer then just come up and ask! All I ask in return is that you also tell me something about you. Look for me around Fairhaven and come say hi!
Hey! I am in my second year at Western and I am currently undeclared. I plan to go into communication and hearing sciences, and my minor is currently in Spanish. My dream is to become a speech pathologist and work with kids in Guatemala who may not have the ability to seek out the help that they need. I prefer to use she, her, hers pronouns; I am very artistic, musical and a dancer. Western was my first choice school because of the sense of community. I am from California, so if you are not from here or don’t know Bellingham very well, don’t worry, we are in this together. Let’s go on adventures and discover the best places in Bellingham!
Hello friends! I hail from Silicon Valley in the sunny state of California but really love the cozy weather in the Evergreen State. I chose Western because of the beautiful setting, perfect student body size, and the positive information I read about Western’s academics. As for my major, I am looking into business. My favorite things about Western are the friendly people and absolutely gorgeous setting of the school. I really appreciate puns so if you have one you would like to share, please feel free! When the weather permits it, you can often find me sitting on the wood benches underneath the PAC plaza overlooking Bellingham Bay. If I am not on the wood benches, I may be in the pool at the Rec Center doing some laps being that I was a competitive swimmer for six years. I get inspired by all the craft ideas on Pinterest, and I laugh at the jokes and marvel at the beautiful photos of all the places I would love to visit on Tumblr. I wanted to become an RA to help and support fellow students in their adjustment to college by fostering a happy and healthy community, and to become more involved in the school that I love.
Hello! I am a senior at WWU and I plan on graduating with a BA in chemistry next year and pursue a secondary teaching endorsement from Woodring College of Education. I will never stop taking collegiate level courses though, because I love to learn! Over the last few years I have gotten very involved in Bellingham and Western Washington gaming communities, including but not exclusive to board games, Warhammer, and MTG. That aside, I also love to be outdoors and allow myself the time to enjoy connecting with nature and getting muddy. Rock climbing, hiking, running: these are just a few of the things I love to do. Western Washington University is my home. It has provided me with innumerable opportunities to get involved and be a part of something great. When I think of WWU, I think of a conglomeration of open minded individual people who strive toward academic excellence, focusing on personal and community growth. I hope to allow you the same opportunities that I was given (and more) this year in Fairhaven!
Hello! I am a sophomore and I plan on majoring in elementary education with a TESOL endorsement and minoring in Spanish. One day I hope I can travel and teach. I love spending time with family and friends, baking, doing DIY projects, traveling, and any outdoor activities. My favorite thing about Western is how friendly everyone is on campus, but also I am in love with how beautiful the campus is. I am a very outgoing and friendly person. Also, I am a really easy person to talk to, and I look forward to meeting you all.
The Executive Team
Election of the Executive Team and Other Officers
Until elections are held in early November, hall council consists only of the community’s general membership. This means that during the months of September and October, all residents are invited to attend the general council meetings and participate in both weekend and Halloween programming. The election process will be announced at a general council meeting leading up to the election date. All general members and candidates in attendance at the election meeting will be eligible to vote.
