Second Floor, Rohlman Hall (by the bridge)
Ashton is excited to be spending her junior year as the AHD in Rohlman! Ashton is an Elementary Education major and loves every second of it. You can usually find Ashton dancing and singing around the hallways, pretending–to the best of her ability–to be Beyoncé. She also is probably talking about, wearing, or working on something Dance Marathon related, seeing as she's the Entertainment and Logistics Director for this year's big event! Ashton also loves glitter and would prefer to spend any, if not all, of her free time watching or re-reading Harry Potter. She is so excited for this next year and can't wait to see where it takes her! Welcome to Rohlman!
Tiffany Rohena, First Floor RA
Tiffany is a junior transfer majoring in Biology with an Environmental Sciences minor from Carolina, Puerto Rico. She is currently in her second year at Ambrose. You can spot her at Galvin, either working at the workshop or backstage at concerts, at Bowlmor with the SAU Bowling Team, or at club meetings such as M.A.C.A., Spanish Club and Biology Club. She hopes to become a veterinarian and even daydreams of being governor of Puerto Rico someday. There are no limits; if she wants to pursue a new goal, she'll persevere no matter the sacrifices that will have to be made in order to achieve it. Tiffany enjoys being around diversity, watching CW's Supernatural, and going to the beach. And no, lakes don't count!

Jessica Lewis, Third Floor RA
Jessica is ecstatic to begin her first year on the Residence life team! She is especially excited to be living in Rohlman Hall again; this will be her third year living there, so she knows the fastest way to get anywhere on campus from the building. She was born and raised in Aurora, Ill., but she loves going to school in Iowa. She is currently a junior who will be starting nursing school this fall. On campus, Jessica is involved in Dance Marathon, intramural sports, and she also used to work at the library (she can tell you the best places to study!). She also enjoys traveling to new places, spending time with her family and friends, playing ultimate frisbee whenever she can, and never missing an episode of Parks and Recreation.
