Valley View Tower Resident Assistants (RAs)


Valley View Tower


Chase Curtis
1st Floor

I love the outdoors here! While it's still warm outside I like to be outdoors, go on hikes, cook in my Dutch Oven, go on early morning runs, and hang out in parks around Logan. Once winter hits I like to go snowboarding or skiing up at Beaver. I am involved in the Air Force ROTC program and I'm also coming back this year as an RA. The school is great and I've loved living on campus the past couple of years! I have made countless friends throughout my years up here and I'm looking forward to making more with this coming year!

Aidan Kragero
2nd Floor

This is my second year at USU and I'm very excited to be a part of the Reslife team this year. I'm from Portland, Oregon. I love the outdoors and playing sports. Currently my favorite sport is hockey!


Scotty Fletcher
3rd Floor

I'm an acting major. I chose USU because the beautiful campus reminded me of my hometown in Maryland. I look forward to being your R.A someday.

Trenton Behunin
4th Floor - Outdoor Adventures Theme

I'm so excited to be an RA this year! I'm a sophomore and a biochemistry major! I love playing sports, being outside, playing the piano, and having fun! GO AGGIES!


Morgan Pales
5th Floor

Im excited to be an R.A because I have had many people that have greatly influenced my time here at USU and I want to be able to help other students while I continue my education at USU.


Makenna Osborne
6th Floor

I grew up in Las Vegas, Nevada, but my dad grew up in Cache Valley and I still have a lot of family up here, so Logan feels like a second home to me. Being from Las Vegas, if you see a person in the winter with 6 jackets and 4 pants on trudging through the Quad, that's me. Winter and I do not get along very well. I'm double-majoring in Pre-Veterinary Science and Equine Science/Management with a minor in Equine Assisted Therapy. Eventually I want to become a large animal veterinarian. I love living in such a beautiful valley and all the outdoor opportunities I have here! I love Logan Canyon and rock climbing up there. I am a 3rd generation Aggie, and proud of that! GO AGGIES!

Ireland Yokom
7th Floor

I am a Journalism major, emphasizing in Public Relations. I came to USU because I fell in love with the people and atmosphere after my first tour. I am in the sorority Kappa Delta, and hope to get more involved the longer I'm here! Super excited to be the 7th floor RA this year!
