3. RA Spotlight: Sydney Starkweather

Sydney Starkweather

* I’m a sophomore.

* I’m a Psychology major and a Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Minor.

* I wanted to become an RA because I wanted to have a greater impact on the Celebrate the Arts Living Learning Community. I wanted to reach more students, celebrate creativity in a more hands-on way, and be a mentor for those who are new to Miami. I find it so awesome to see new students become members of the Miami community throughout their first year. Plus, helping others is a passion of mine, and being another resource for residents is an huge plus-side to my job as an RA.

4. RA Spotlight: Nick Cruz

Nick Cruz

* I'm a Junior

* I'm a Mechanical and Manufacturing double major

* I became an RA because I have always liked to help people. During my freshman year, my RA was a really great guy. In fact, he encouraged me to apply for the position. Not only did he inform me about being an RA, but he was a good role model like I hope to be with my residents!

5. Third Floor Resident Spotlight: Xiaoyang (Kathryn) Liu, Dani Eaton, Tanner McCormick

Kathryn

She is friendly and always say hello when she sees me in the hall or around campus. She is thoughtful and offered me some of her fresh grapes, and she is a joy to have in the corridor and always makes me smile.

Dani

She is a great person to have conversations with, and is very nice and friendly. She is not afraid to ask questions or for help, and she is getting involved in campus activities and attends hall events. She is very good at speaking her message and has many great programming ideas for the hall like ribbon twirling, crafts, and origami.

Tanner McCormick

Tanner spends his time hanging with people. Enjoys long walks around the quad while his roommate is with his girlfriend. Tanner has put forth effort into his major and even got a part in the production of "Rosen Crantz and Guildenstern Are Dead". Tanner has made friends throughout the hall and across campus. His favorite color is vomit green. When he grows up he wants to be an actor. He hopes to star in theater productions and be a lead in Hamilton.
