Spiritual and International Resident Hall Advisors (RAs)

Ashton TempleAshton Temple, Second Floor RA
McCarthy Hall 215
Email Ashton
Ashton is a senior this year and has a hard time believing that this is her last year at Ambrose. She is studying Elementary Education so she can hang with kiddos all day because they are the source of her joy. She's from Bettendorf, IA, a treacherous trek of 5 miles down the road, and she went to Bettendorf High School (Bulldogz for lyfe). She loves to sing, dance, eat, laugh, and anything that has to do with Dance Marathon and FTK. She also likes to have adventures by herself or with others; she's not that picky. Ashton is beyond thrilled to be kicking it in McCarthy this year and build some pretty great relationships with all the homies in this club.

He enjoys being a member of Habitat for Humanity and loves participating in intramural sports such as table tennis, volleyball and floor hockey.
