We would like to introduce the 2013-2014 McCarthy Hall (formerly West Hall) Staff. This highly experienced veteran team is excited to become a resource toward your success at St. Ambrose University. Don't hesitate to knock on their door and ask questions. McCarthy Hall Staff is here to provide a great community and environment where we strive to help in the development of the well-rounded Ambrosian.
First Floor, McCarthy Hall
Emma is a senior from Milan, Ill., double majoring in public relations and media studies. She is thrilled to spend her third and final year with Residence Life as the SHM for McCarthy Hall. Emma keeps busy as a member of The Buzz staff and also is a campus tour guide. In her free time she enjoys going for runs, being outside, and baking. She is anxious to get to know all of the residents in McCarthy so be sure to stop by any time!
Second Floor, Rohlman Hall (by the bridge)
Alison DeVilder is the Hall Director for Rohlman and McCarthy Halls and lives in Rohlman. She oversees the Student Hall Manager, Emma Williams, who lives in McCarthy and provides primary on site support for McCarthy Hall.
Efrain Montoya, Second Floor RA
McCarthy Hall 215
A sophomore from Rock Island, Ill., Efrain cannot wait to be a resident advisor for this year and to meet plenty of new people! He is currently involved in Student Government Association and has two part time jobs: one at Hy-Vee and the other as a United States Marine. He is currently a nursing major with a minor in Spanish, but when he is not busy studying for his future, you can find him eating all day, every day. He loves volleyball and baseball/softball, and working out is his best stress reliever with a side order of McDonald's fries. He is very family-oriented and loves his little dog, Lily, and loves to smile wherever and whenever. And he recommends frozen yogurt from Jujube and Mexican food from La Rancherita because it is life-changing. He loves hip hop music and believes that Ellen Page is his soul twin for life.
Kemper Rusteberg, Third Floor and International RA
McCarthy Hall 315
Kemper believes in the Ambrosian experience and strives to enrich the lives of others around him. He accomplishes this by spending his time as the President of the student body (Student Government Association), President of GreenLife (environmental student group), International RA in McCarthy Hall, being an advocate for peers from other countries, and being an active member of Campus Ministries.
Ambrose has provided him with some amazing experiences. For example, he has spent some time abroad through two international programs, the Israel Economic Experience (Israel winter '12), and Rome & Christianity (Italy winter '13). Pursuing an International Business major and an interdisciplinary minor in Environmental studies, Kemper is getting the most out of life. This will be Kemper's final year at St. Ambrose University because he is graduating in spring '14.
Amanda McClure, Fourth Floor and Spiritual RA
McCarthy Hall 415
Amanda is excited to be moving to the McCarthy Hall spiritual community to begin her senior year, and second year as an RA! Originally from Bloomington, Ill., Amanda chose St. Ambrose to pursue a nursing major and is also working towards receiving minors in biology and psychology. On campus, Amanda is a member of the Student Alumni Association, a cantor for music ministry, and is IN LOVE with Dance Marathon!!! She loves to sing, is obsessed with Michael Buble, and prefers a classic Disney movie to just about anything. She can't wait to get to know all of her residents, and is thrilled for an exciting year!
