Hi! My name is Maggie Ward and I am a junior this year! I am from Davenport and looking forward to living on the 4th floor in Franklin. I am an Early Childhood Education major. I love being around kiddos and can't wait to work with them everyday as a career. When I'm not in class or studying I love taking naps, playing games, and watching TV series on Netflix. (If you know of a good one to start let me know!) I am looking forward to this year and if you need anything my door is always open!

I am going into my senior year at SAU, my third year in Residence Life, and the first time working with sophomores. One of the main reasons I became an RA was to be a mentor, so never hesitate to to ask me anything! I'm from Des Plaines, Ill., a northwest suburb of Chicago. I'm majoring in Early Childhood Education and adore the little ones. In my free time you can find me doing one of two things; watching Netflix (anything Shonda Rhimes created because she is a genius), or eating (probably tacos) #TeamChipotle. I'm looking forward to a great year!!
