Since starting my Bowdoin career, I have been provided with infinite resources to grow as a student, a friend, and a leader. With help from the ResLife staff, over the course of my two years here I have conquered personal and academic hurdles, gained deep and formative friendships, and learned so much about myself, my peers, and the Bowdoin community. I wanted to join ResLife because I see being a house proctor as the ideal way to provide other students with the same growth experience I had. ResLife is also a great way to immerse myself in this awesome community that I love.
