I am a Senior majoring in Chemistry with a minor in Biology. I am from Washington, Iowa. I am in the Honors Program, Chemistry Club, and involved in dance marathon. I like to hang out with friends, play ultimate frisbee, play video games, and watch Colts football. I have three dogs, and I love hanging out with them when I go home. I am very excited to be a part of the North Hall residence life staff as it is my second year. It will be a very exciting school year and my first as the Academic Community Advisor.

Adam Blaser is a sophomore this year at St. Ambrose University. He was raised up on a small farm in Coal Valley, Ill., and has lived in the Quad Cities area his entire life. Adam loves his sports teams and can occasionally get a little rambunctious watching the Chicago Blackhawks. He also enjoys the outdoors and doing things such as fishing, hiking, swimming, or just simply being out with friends. But more than anything, Adam enjoys meeting new people, and cannot wait to be part of the Residence Life team this year.
