Get to know your Morton Residence Hall Director and Resident Assistants.
North District Residence Hall Director
Name: Jacob Tasseff
- Bachelor of Arts, History & Political Science - Purdue University
- Masters of Education, Higher Education Leadership - Valdosta State University
Why I chose NAU: Since the moment I stepped on campus, I felt extremely welcomed at NAU and that this was going to be a place I could call home. Everyone is so kind and helpful that I know this is the place I can grow as a professional, and hopefully make a lasting impact. I also completely love the outdoors, and am looking forward to no longer living in a flat state!
Morton Graduate Residence Hall Director
Name: Madalyn Morris
- Bachelor of Arts, Psychology, minor in Gender and Sexuality Studies - California State University San Bernardino
Why I Chose NAU: I chose NAU because of the amazing opportunities academically and professionally the campus has to offer. I also really like the small close community feel NAU has.
Morton Resident Assistants
Name: Taylor Fosselman
Major: Sophomore/Business Management
Hometown: San Dimas, CA
Why I chose Northern Arizona University: I never thought I'd leave California for college (having lived there my entire life), but something about NAU just felt right. I absolutely fell in love with it the first time I visited campus and I could not be more happy with my decision to go here. Everything about it has turned out to be as great as I'd hoped: the people, the teachers, the staff- and especially the climate. Whether it's hot and sunny or cold and snowy, you can always count on it to be a beautiful day in Flagstaff. It's honestly been such an amazing place to live and learn, and I can't wait to see what the next few years have to offer.
Why I'm excited to be an RA: I just really love being able to help people and being someone others can count on, which is such a big aspect of being an RA. So, although there are tons of things I'm looking forward to, that's probably what I'm most excited about!
Name: Cara Pocano
Major: Biomedical Science
Why I chose Northern Arizona University: I love the friendly atmosphere of campus, and the endless hiking potential of Flagstaff! NAU also offers a multitude of science classes, allowing me to take courses that interest me.
Why I'm excited for this year: I am excited to make a difference in resident's lives and support them through their transition to NAU. I want to provide a supportive first year college experience, and enable residents to fall in love with not only NAU, but with Flagstaff as well.
