    Angell Hall
    Angell

    Jaron Frederick

    SI Co-Chair

    Hi everyone! My name is Jaron Frederick and I live in the wonderful Angell Hall, room 426B! My major is Secondary Education and I plan on teaching high school Social Studies or Mathematics. Alongside Taylor, I serve as one of the SI co-chairs. The goals I hope to achieve through my time in RHAC are simple: to become a better leader and establish meaningful relationships. The experiences that I am able to have through RHAC are already teaching me valuable lessons and I can’t wait to apply them in years to come. My hobbies include singing, playing the piano, video games, cooking, and meeting new people. I love RHAC because of the strong friendships made and the positive impacts we can make on our campus!

    Nicole Fronek

    ARC Co-Chair

    Hey! My name is Nicole Fronek from Angell Hall and I live in the very cozy room of 213A.  I am majoring in Biomedical Science with a Pre-Med emphasis and a Spanish minor.  I am one of the co-chairs of ARC. A goal I have (even though it may not seem large) ties into my hobbies.  I love to work out and my goal is to get stronger everyday to the point where I can do at least two whole pull-ups. So yes, my hobby, more specifically, is weight lifting combined with crossfit; which in the fitness world is a scandal compared to loving two polar opposite enemies like English and Math. This also ties into what I would like to be after college. I would love to be an orthopedic surgeon, or MD for athletes or more specifically an athletic team. I love how friendly the environment is at RHAC and how I can make a difference. I hope to gain a more professional leadership appearance and more experience in general.

     

    Coate Hall

    Coate

    Beverly Jackson - ARC

    Hi, I am Bevie RHAC ARC member from the kingdom of Coate room 202B. As of now my major is psychology. I am not sure exactly what I want to do with it. I love RHAC because I met so many amazing people and it connects me to campus in a lot of ways. I hope to make UW-L a better place by being a RHAC rep.

    Jack Flinchum - SI

    Hey all, my name is Jack Flinchum and I’m an RHAC SI member from Coate Hall in room 318 B. I’m switching my major from Exercise and Sport Science to Psychology with a minor in Sociology and am thinking of being a counselor after college. I love to run and plan on running an Ironman someday! I recently ran the Chicago marathon in October and it was an absolute blast. I love RHAC for the people that are involved in it and am looking forward to making an impact on UW-La Crosse.

     

    Drake Hall
    Drake

    Jacob Sparks - ARC

    Hey guys, my name’s Jacob Sparks (or just Sparks) and I’m an RHAC and ARC representative from Drake Hall, room 209 (just 2 rooms away from the best co-rep!) I’m majoring in Finance and minoring in Communication Studies but I’m thinking about going into Student Affairs as a grad program. I am not sure what I want to be when I graduate, but I know it will definitely involve working in a social environment. I love playing soccer and volleyball, watching movies, and hanging with friends. RHAC is such a blast to go to because everyone from all halls seem to be able to work together, and especially for such a large group, you tend to never see that, and who could hate sitting next to Bev every Thursday?! I hope being in RHAC gives me leadership and social skills that I can use when applying to be a Desk Coordinator next year, and I also want to leave an impact for future RHAC reps.

    Evan Mol - SI

    What’s good everyone? My name is Evan Mol and I’m the SI (Specific Issues) RHAC rep for Drake this year. My Batcave is room 207 and I live just 2 doors away from my faithful co rep in crime Sparks. I am a Accounting major and looking for a double major at the moment. I’m also hoping to have a German minor and study abroad sometime in my college career. I have many hobbies, most of them nerdy, but I love hanging out and getting to meet new people and that is why I ran for an RHAC position. I love playing video games with my friends (this can be computer, xbox, etc.). I also enjoy playing ultimate frisbee, basketball, and soccer. My college goal is to become an RA and create a great community. RHAC has been a great experience for me so far with getting to meet people along with gaining valuable leadership skills.

    Linsey Feit - SI

    Hello friends!  My name is Linsey Feit and I reside in Eagle Maroon, room 229A.  As a member of the SI committee, I’ve found that I greatly enjoy discussing issues with residents and helping their voices be heard.  Although my major is currently undeclared, I am leaning towards Clinical Laboratory Science with a possible minor in Psychology.  I’ve already had a wonderful time as a representative for RHAC, but one of the highlights has been joining Broadening Horizons and planning events to increase inclusivity on our campus.  RHAC is full of lovely individuals and it has helped me accomplish my goal of getting involved in clubs and organizations this year.  I look forward to making a positive impact on our campus!

One day I hope to work with children with autism or to work with veterans with physical disabilities from war. My hobbies are running, listening to music, and relaxing. I decided to be a part of the wellness committee because I am interested in the health of myself along with everyone around me. I am also a member of ARC and have enjoyed every minute of it. My favorite part of RHAC would have to be the great relationships I have made so far, everyone in this group is so supportive and respectful to everyone around them. The meetings are also very enjoyable, even though they can be lengthy sometimes, we always make sure to laugh a lot. My goals for this semester are to receive all A's and B's in my classes, along with looking for jobs in my field of work for next school year. As a member of RHAC, I would like to become more involved in my dorm and build networks for the future.

    Hey ya’ll I am Sarah Brumer. I live in Wentz Hall, whoop! I just recently declared a major in Psychology with a minor in Business. I plan on going on to Grad school for Occupational Therapy.  One  goal that I have is that I want to run a half marathon. I planned on running one this coming spring here in La Crosse  but haven’t been training the way I should have. Hopefully that changes soon! With that, I am very passionate about being active and I love to play sports; basketball, volleyball, softball, football you name it I’ll play it. I am super competitive and love a challenge.  And this year I challenged myself to become more involved on campus and that is why I joined RHAC and I can say that I love it. Being involved was something I always enjoyed, and last year it was really difficult not being involved so that is why I changed it up this year. I love having the chance to make a difference for others on campus.I am very happy about how my sophomore year has been going and it can only get better.

I love competitive swimming, my favorite Disney movie is Robin Hood, I love manatees, and I am regularly seen wearing lime green Crocs. I joined RHAC at second semester when the position opened up so I could begin my involvement at UWL. I have learned so much already from RHAC and love to work with a group giving their time to constantly improve life on campus. While in RHAC, I hope to make it known to residents that they do have a voice here on campus. To do that, i am involved in the SI committee. I am also in the Greener Living Committee as well. I am very grateful that I am able to be involved in my school through RHAC.
