McKay Village Resident Assistants 

2015 Nicole Hicks - McKay Village
Name: Nicole Hicks
Major: Biomedical Science
Hometown: Phoenix, AZ

Why I Chose Northern Arizona University: I chose this university because they offered me the best deal financially and a part of me wanted to get away from my home life, but not too far away.

Why I’m Excited to be an RA: I love the idea of meeting new people and to be able to share wonderful memories with each other. I hope that I can impact my residents lives in a wonderful way, one that they carry with them throughout their college careers.

2015 Annelise Krafft - McKay Village
Name: Annelise Krafft
Major: Strategic Communications with a minor in Spanish
Hometown: Phoenix, AZ

Why I Chose Northern Arizona University: When I was looking at colleges my senior year of high school, nothing felt like home to me until I visited Northern Arizona University. The small town feel and welcoming atmosphere were really inviting and I had my heart set on going here the second I set foot on campus! Also, being a few hours away from home was really important to me so I could have my family so close by!

Why I’m excited to be an RA: I’m excited to be a Resident Assistant because I love people! This job is really great for getting to know a lot of different types of people from different backgrounds and finding ways to bring them together. I can't wait to get to know my residents and have a great year with them!

2015 Katrina Cuevas - McKay Village
Name: Katrina Cuevas
Major: Public Health & Graphic Design
Hometown: Phoenix, AZ

Why I Chose Northern Arizona University: I chose Northern Arizona University for the beautiful location, friendly people, and unlimited possibilities. NAU was the place I felt I could grow most and meet amazing people. Flagstaff has that small town feeling that is very welcoming and inviting, but there are also lots of adventures for you and your friends to discover. I love NAU.

Why I’m Excited to be an RA: I'm excited to be an RA in McKay/Campus Heights for the first time this year. I was an RA for the past two years in McConnell, and cannot wait to see the similarities and differences between freshmen and upper division housing. I love helping residents grow and continue their journey here at NAU, and I want to help in any way I can. I'm so excited to meet my residents and have an amazing year with my wonderful and talented staff.

2015 Tyree West - McKay Village
Name: Tyree West
Major: Criminology, Criminal Justice - minor Psychology
Hometown: Los Angeles, CA

Why I Chose Northern Arizona University: I chose NAU because it was a different environment for me, I also wanted to experience snow (which I found out that I don't like it), flagstaff is a beautiful city and it isn't to far from home.

Why I’m Excited to be an RA: I chose to be a RA because I wanted experience with different types of people, I also wanted to be a source for others could come to. I enjoy being the person that others feel comfortable enough to talk to, and I love learning from others, this job gives me both.

2015 Ryan Gould - McKay Village
Name: Ryan Gould
Major: Chemistry
Hometown: Tempe, AZ

Why I Chose NAU: I have been coming to Flagstaff for weekend vacations ever since I was ten years old, and I could not imagine myself anywhere else.

Why I'm Excited to be an RA: I was in a fraternity and I am currently in the AFROTC program, which have both provided new experiences as well as leadership opportunities. I wanted to have as much leadership experience as I could get, and being an RA was the next step for me. The perks are nice too!

2015 Gage Myers - McKay Village
Name: Gage Myers
Major: Applied Computer Science
Hometown: San Diego, CA

Why I Chose Northern Arizona University: I chose NAU because as I visited the campus I really enjoyed the scenery of Flagstaff. Also I wanted to get away from California and experience something new. This was the perfect option for being away from home but still close enough to visit.

Why I’m Excited to be an RA: I am excited to be an RA because I have gotten to meet so many new people through this job, and I am looking forward to meeting more. This job is very rewarding in that I get to have a direct impact on the lives of my residents and hopefully I get to push them towards a successful future.
