Living Learning Community Residence Director


Becca Phillips

(435) 797-6811

I've had the good fortune of calling Utah State home for the past several years. My bachelor's degree is in marketing, and I am finishing a master's degree in instructional leadership with an emphasis in student affairs. This year, I am looking forward to helping the LLC residents make some exciting memories, and I am excited to work on a few improvement projects for the LLC with our facilities staff. I have selected and trained a great team of Resident Assistants (RAs), and we have some great activities planned for the semester! If you'd like to get more involved in the community, or if you're potentially interested in becoming an RA, I would highly recommend checking out LLC Area Council. This student leadership group has access to some great opportunities at USU, resources, networks, and experiences. Ask your RA about when meetings are held, and get involved!
