Hi, my name is Maggie and I am a sophomore! I am from Davenport, so if you need help finding anything come my way! I am majoring in Early Childhood Education and can't wait to hang out with little kiddos for a career. I lived in Cosgrove my freshman year and am now an RA on the 5th floor! This year I plan on being even more involved in campus activities than last year. When I am not in class or studying I like to nap, watch romantic comedies, or a TV series on Netflix. I also have a Wii, so feel free to stop by and play some games with me! I love spending time with family and friends, and meeting new people! I'm looking forward to this school year!

Hello, I am Evan Carston. I grew up in New Lenox, Ill., which is about 40 minutes from the city. I attended Providence Catholic High School, which is a private Catholic school. At Providence I played three sports, I wrestled, played football and in the spring threw shot and disc for track. I am going to be a sophomore next year and I'm currently a Computer Science major. I like to think of myself as a movie buff and I know a lot about music. Another big thing about me is I am a Chicago fan, I love the Blackhawks, the White Sox, and Da Bears and Da Bulls. I really enjoy watching sports and my guilty pleasure is I love watching pro wrestling as well. My favorite wrestler of all time is Macho Man Randy Savage OHHHH YEAAAA BROTHE!!!!!!!

Hi everyone! I am a sophomore studying Psychology going into Occupational Therapy and this is my first year as a RA! I will be on fifth floor in Cosgrove. I have a fraternal twin sister Kaitlyn and a mentally handicapped older brother Adam. I love to regularly volunteer for Special Olympics and encourage you all to get involved with that and the many clubs and organizations that SAU has to offer. I am from right across the bridge in Rock Island, Ill., so feel free to ask me about finding good food, fun, and other festivities in the area! I have a giant black lab Bruno and he is so adorable! I can't wait to get involved with the residence life staff and meet all of my residents for the 2015-2016 school year!
