Meg WhiteI was born in Boston and have lived in the city for years, but still enjoy exploring various neighborhoods, either by foot or on the T.  I love traveling and my favorite city in the world is Paris, France. I have family that lives in Perth, Australia and that allows me to visit there every few years.  A long time ago, I was a DJ – listening to music is still one of my favorite pastimes. If you have a new band to share, stop by my office and play them for me!

Hugh KimI was born in Antelope Valley, California—I never saw one antelope there. Most of my childhood was spent in Northridge, which is known for earthquakes—I remember many of those. I have also lived in Colorado Springs and Littleton, Colorado, throughout high school and the beginning of college. Since transferring to BU as a student (an undisclosed number of years ago), Boston and BU have been my home. I have worked and lived in several buildings on campus but currently live in 10 Buick Street. I can be found biking around the city or playing pick-up hockey at Walter Brown Arena. I enjoy traveling in the summer and have made three cross-country road trips—camping, hiking, biking, and visiting friends and family along the way.

Ben ChampneyYears ago, I joined Boston University’s Residence Life team as a Resident Assistant in Warren Towers. After two exciting years as an RA without ethernet or cable TV, I graduated from the College of Arts & Sciences with fond memories of the day David Letterman visited C Tower. After volunteering in East Africa for a number of years doing much more than raising indigenous chicken, I returned to Warren Towers to serve as a Senior RA while completing my Master of Divinity at the School of Theology. I have worked full-time in Residence Life in a number of areas across campus, but I currently enjoy serving the community in 33 Harry Agganis Way. My interests include tinkering with electronics, cross-cultural interactions, spending time with my family, and exploring Boston’s historic nooks and crannies.

isaacI am a proud native of the Greenbrier Valley in “Wild, Wonderful” West Virginia.  I have lived all along the east from small mountain towns to coastal cities.  I’ve been from White Sulphur Springs and Lewisburg, WV; to the suburbs of DC in Sterling, Manassas, and Manassas Park, VA; to the suburbs of Charlotte, NC to the mountains in Asheville, NC; to further inland in the Pittsburgh, PA area; and finally landing in New England on the coast in New London, CT and now in Boston.  I received my B.A. in French at the University of North Carolina Asheville, and my M.A. in Higher Education at Geneva College in Beaver Falls, PA.  I truly value being a significant part of helping students build the strengths they need to navigate a successful collegiate journey.  Please stop in to enjoy a cup of coffee, talk hockey and football, or to help me keep up my French and teach me a new phrase in your native language.
