Residential Life Staff
We're here to make sure your residential life experience at Franklin Pierce is rewarding, safe and fully-integrated with all aspects of living and learning in a liberal arts community. You will meet two types of staff in your residence hall. Each has a role in helping students adjust to college life and make the most of residential, social and academic life at Franklin Pierce.
A Residence Director (RD) is a professional staff member that lives in the residence halls and oversees the development of their residents. Each has the experience and skill to supervise, provide leadership and act as a role model for their respective staffs. Residence Directors are responsible for establishing a civil and respectful living community while promoting student involvement in the University community. They also serve as a Student Conduct Officer and are responsible for meeting with their residents when alleged policy violations occur.
A Community Assistant (CA) is a carefully selected upper-class student leader who assists in developing a community. CA's fulfill many roles including programmer, administrator, and policy enforcer. They are familiar with the University's goals, services, policies and procedures. Community Assistants are directly supervised by the Residence Directors.

Hi! My name is Olivia and I am from Westchester, New York! I recently received a degree in Psychology from SUNY Oneonta. During my time as an undergraduate I was a Resident Advisor and received a medal for platinum leadership skills. This led me to wanting to peruse a job in Student Affairs as a Residence Director. As the director of the Freshman Area, I strive to create a safe and welcoming area within our campus. In my free time, I love cooking and going on adventures with my girlfriend. I hope to one day adopt a dog of my own.
