Humanities and Social Sciences
I am excited to meet all of you as the semester unfolds. I am your Faculty in Residence, FIR for short. For those of you who aren't sure what that means, I am a full-time faculty member who lives in the residence halls here at Presidents Row. I am a senior lecturer in the Anthropology department who also teaches for the Life of the Mind Program. I am passionate about my discipline, teaching, and students. I opted to join the FIR program in 2014. I spent the first two years living in Harrison Hall before I moved over here to Presidents Row. As a FIR I am here to help coordinate some events to spend time getting to know you all. I look forward to hosting times to hang out and chat. I hope to be an additional resource for your life on campus. I think that the connections we make with faculty during our collegiate experience play a big role in our success and experience. So, feel free to reach out and let me know if you would like to meet up for tea, take a walk, or dinner together in the dining hall.
Look for announcements that announce different opportunities for you to join in activities throughout the semester. I look forward to being able to get out and share some of my favorite things about Greeley and the wonderful downtown community by going to different restaurants, taking a city bus tour, and watching art flicks at the Kress Cinema. Watch for things like pumpkin painting, or the craft nights, and game nights. Watch for texts and emails!
As an Alumnus from UNC (my BA is from here in History), I have always admired the Presidents Row space and am delighted that I call this home. I am sure you will see my son and I in the dining hall from time to time, so please come and introduce yourself. I am excited to get to know you.
My office is in Candelaria 2233. and if you find yourself over that way you are always welcome to swing by and say hello.
See you soon, I hope.
