Lower Bay State Road
Assistant Director of Residence Life for Lower Bay State Road
My name is Yvette Lancaster and this is my 13th year with Residence Life and my 15th at Boston University. I have a bachelor’s degree in arts management from Springfield College and a master’s degree in higher education and student affairs administration from the University of Vermont. Prior to joining the BU community, I lived and worked at Assumption College in Worcester, Massachusetts, and American University in Washington, D.C. I help coordinate the University’s Specialty Communities, which entails working closely with both academic and student affairs groups to support students’ academic efforts. Living and working at BU allows me to take advantage of many of my interests and hobbies. I’m a workout fiend, so you’ll find me at the FitRec Center and out walking around campus. I like traveling, exploring the city, and spending time with my husband Webb, who also works at BU. I love a good book and I’ve never seen a piece of chocolate I didn’t like. I’m friendly, loyal, a fan of the underdog, and my office door is always open.
Residence Hall Director, Danielsen Hall
I have had the honor of experiencing an entire spectrum of roles here at Boston University: from student (I lived in Warren Towers my freshman year)… to Resident Assistant… to Administrative Secretary in the 575 Commonwealth Avenue Residence Life office… and finally to Residence Hall Director at Danielsen Hall. Additionally, from 2011 to 2013, I also worked as a Residence Life Coordinator at The New England Institute of Art, while also screenwriting for an indie series set in Allston. College illuminated the direction of my life, and I am extraordinarily fortunate to be able to work as a guide to students on their way to their own personal discoveries. I just completed the Master’s Program in higher education administration at The School of Education. Find me in the dining hall – I love chatting about movies!
Residence Hall Director, Myles Standish Hall and Annex
Having grown up in Woodbridge, CT, I found myself wanting more of a city life and chose to go to school at Boston College. I received a degree in economics and education and was heavily involved in the Residence Hall Association of Boston College. After graduation, I taught middle school math through Americorps before going back to Boston College to earn a Master’s in higher education while working as a Residence Director at Tufts. I then worked at Curry College as a Community Director. I have a passion for dancing and have taught both swing and hip-hop, so come find me… seriously. I love cooking and teach some of those basics as well. On a random day, you may find me talking with strangers and making new friends. Come stop by and say hi!
Area Director, Kilachand Residences and Fisk House
A native of New Hampshire, I attended Plymouth State University and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in social work. After working in a shelter for survivors of domestic violence in Ann Arbor, Michigan, I returned to New England to work in higher education and received a Master’s of Education and Counseling in the School of Education at Boston University. I enjoy activities such as hiking, mountain biking, and camping, but my true passion is running. I have completed eight marathons and one ultra-marathon. I have also qualified for the Boston Marathon with a time of 3:33. I enjoy coaching others and teach a marathon training class here at BU. My professional passion is student development and I enjoy connecting with students both in the classroom and within residence life.
