College Major/Degree: Psychology and Human Services
Best Residence Life Memories from My Own College Days: There are so many memories! Living on campus was the best decision I made. My senior year was my favorite by far. I had a great group of friends who all lived on campus. We spent a lot of time hanging out in each other’s living rooms talking, eating, watching shows and movies, playing games and studying. It was a great community and the best memories were made in the regular day to day things. Having that community was only made possible by Residence Life staff and programs, and I love seeing that played out daily in my job.

College Major/Degree: B.S. in Christian Ministry at LeTourneau University
Best Residence Life Memories from My Own College Days: Engaging in traditions between the floor I hung out with and our brother floor, like the truck push, Christmas and Valentine’s parties, and game nights, as well as the campus wide events that I got to help plan, since I was a part of our school’s activity council. One of the coolest things I got to be a part of was the construction of not one, but two pergolas for two school dances!

Proleine Pierre, GA Residence Director of Spartan Village and Coordinator of Student Life

GA Residence Director of Spartan Village and Coordinator of Student Life
Hometown: Nassau, Bahamas
Major:
B.S Physical Education and majoring now in M.S Sports management 
Best memory: Best memory I would say is living in the dorms. Had many memories from events my RA planned for residents, going to each other’s room to hang out, studying in the lobby, and watching movies. Also attending the perk event, up all night, homecoming, and stress less was my favorite. Lastly, the MBU community that welcomed me with open arms making me have a home away from home.
