Hello, I am David Francis. I am going to be a junior here at the Bee-Nation. I play soccer here at SAU and am involved in many activities on and off campus. I am currently a Sport Management major with the goal of working in  collegiate sports. I enjoy long walks on the beach, pina coladas, and getting caught in the rain. However, I am not that into yoga, so please do not ask. WARNING: I like to quote movies and am a huge movie buff. I am looking forward to being on the RoHa staff and helping the sophomore class this year at SAU.

I am a senior here at Ambrose starting my first semester in the Physical Therapy program. I have lived in both Florida and Iowa, Davenport being my hometown. This will my 3rd year as an RA, and my second year as part of the Rohlman staff. I had a great experience with my residents and staff members on first floor Rohlman this past school year and look forward to what 2015-2016 might entail!

Hey there! My name is Brooke and I'm a junior nursing student here at Ambrose. I'm from Lake in the Hills (weird name, I know), Illinois and I could not be more excited to be working with sophomores in Rohlman! This will be my second year as an RA, and I have a ton of cool ideas I want to try out this year. I love to spend time with friends, play some board games, and be outside. I'm involved with all aspects of Campus Ministry, I enjoy a good run, and I love laughing with friends and residents. Let's have a fantastic year! :)

Nick Pearce is a third semester RA, with a deep-seated passion for both improving the school and ice cream. He is majoring in Theatre and Public Relations. This year he will be on the third floor of Rohlman again, because lateral career moves are a safe bet in this current economy. He has 9 dogs and 3 sisters, and a pet chinchilla that he left at home because only fish are allowed to live in the residence halls of SAU without proper paperwork.

Hey There! It's my third year in Res Life. I spent the past three years in Davis, once as a resident, once as an RA, and once as an Assistant Hall Director. I have a love for Davis, but I am excited to spend my last semester at Ambrose in Rohlman! Last semester I had the privilege of spending 5 months in Argentina. I studied, traveled and amped up my Spanish game. I have a love for Spanish, travel, and exploring. I am a Gender Studies Major and a Sociology Major with a Psychology Minor, so I have a passion for people and social justice. My favorite things include: ice cream, coffee, Taylor Swift, Disney movies, reading, and ice cream. I stay busy by attending various SAAT (Sexual Assault Awareness Team) events, dancing FTK!, and working my two jobs. I love to talk and eat and drink coffee, so if you ever want to talk about study abroad, have a convo in Spanish or English about life or whatever just hit me up!

Hey you can call me Chris, I'm a senior at St. Ambrose. I'm from St. Louis, Missouri (Cardinals Fan) and majoring in Graphic Design, Book Arts, and minoring in Art History. I am very creative and artistic. I played football here at Ambrose my first two years but realized I should focus on my career as a designer. I love graffiti and calligraphy; you will find out my design style when you see your door decorations. I'm excited for this upcoming year; unfortunately I will only be your RA for one semester because I'm going to Florence, Italy in the spring. But it will be a great semester!
