Hey Aggies! I am super excited for my first year at Utah State and having the great fortune of serving the students in the Living Learning Community (LLC).

I am looking forward to getting to know campus and each of the unique residents that make up our LLC community. I love squirrels, nature, yoga, getting involved in my community, trying new things, and so much more :) Stop by my office in Building A and utilize me as a resource for anything you may need.

Justin Jaques

Hi there, my name is Justin Jaques. I grew up in Vernal Utah, which is located 4 and a half hours east of here. Growing up, was quite an adventure for me each day as I worked on the family ranch and participated in almost every event in High School. Jazz-Band, Honor-Society, Football, Wrestling, Stage Crew, and FFA. I'm also an Eagle Scout and served a 2-year LDS mission up in Montana. My Favorite soundtrack is from the movie Spirit and I enjoy most other genres of music other than rap. As for school I'm currently pursuing a bachelor's degree in Landscape Architecture here at USU. I pumped up for the school year and looking forward to meeting ya all!

I moved to Utah from Iowa in 2015 and have absolutely fallen in love with Logan and our beautiful campus! This is my first year as an RA and I am incredibly excited to be a part of such an awesome organization. I'm a firm believer that ice cream solves all problems (especially Bull Tracks from Aggie Ice Cream!), that sunshine is good for the soul, and that sometimes you just need to dance it out. I am looking forward to an awesome year and GO AGGIES!
