Welcome to MVT, the best place on campus. I have a M.S.Ed. degree in Counseling with a Student Affairs emphasis from the University of Nebraska.

USU is a fantastic university and I love how there is always something going on. From football games, to lecture series, to apocalyptic zombie games there is never a dull moment.

2nd Floor

Hello! I have loved living in Mountain View Tower for the last two years and I am very excited to start my second year as a resident assistant. I am going into my Junior year and am studying finance. I enjoy most activities such as basketball, quidditch, card and board games, reading, singing, acting, watching movies, talking and listening. My eventual goal is to change the debt mentality of the United States. I'm looking forward to this year where residents of the Second floor will achieve greatness!

3rd Floor

I love the atmosphere of USU. The campus is small but the community is large. I've made more friends here at USU in one semester than I was able to find throughout all of High School. One of my favorite things about USU is Humans Vs. Zombie. It's a week-long game played here on campus that turned my first year here from 100% stress to 100% amazing! I'm looking forward to being a part of that again this year and I actually got to help plan it so I know it will be awesome! I'm also a huge fan of Ultimate Frisbee, Nintendo games, Board and Card games, and all sorts of outdoor activities. USU is an amazing place and I hope you will have as awesome a time as I have.

I love the nice Campus and I have already made lots of great friends. I am excited to work this year as and RA, and I know that I am going to learn a lot. I’m looking forward to getting to know you all. Go AGGIES!

I grew up out of state, so when I came here my RA helped me feel welcome and sypported my freshman year. That's why I became an RA. I've worked in MVT for 2.5 years, and I'm excited to have another awesome year!
