Paul HughesI was born and raised in Brockton, MA, “City of Champions.” I attended Brockton High School and was voted “Most Likely to Host a Talk Show.” After high school, I attended Stonehill College and received a BA in Communication. In 2004, I received my MA in Higher Education Administration from NYU. I joined the Residence Life team at Boston University in the fall of 2005 and have served as the Residence Hall Director at Myles Standish Hall and Warren Towers. I enjoy working and living on campus. I can be found having breakfast, lunch, or dinner in one of the dining halls, playing a round of squash at the Fitness & Recreation Center, or taking a leisurely stroll along Commonwealth Avenue. I consider fall move-in, traveling on an Alternative Spring Break trip, and Commencement among some of the highlights of the academic year.

Tim HeganI grew up on the North Shore of Boston in Swampscott and my mom still lives in the home that I was raised in. I received my BS in Psychology and Criminal Justice from Salem State College in 1992, and I earned an M.Ed. from the BU School of Education in 2013. My student services professional career is about 15 years in the making, and I have worked a good part of the last 30 years in counseling, mental health, teaching, advocacy, and job development. I have an open-door policy in my office and welcome students to visit, or set up an appointment to speak with me. For the past eight years, I have opened my home for visitors of the BU community on Sunday evenings from 6 to 8 p.m., during which I serve refreshments, snacks and home-baked desserts, in an effort to provide our student community a place to relax and have casual conversation. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, landscaping, caring for plants and animals, going on road trips, traveling, and cooking. I look forward to meeting you, seeing you, and assisting you through BU Residence Life!

William JonesI was born and raised in small town Alabama where I perfected my accent. I earned my Bachelor of Science in Social Science from the University of Montevallo. After my undergraduate experience, I spent two years abroad as a municipal and community development volunteer for the Peace Corps in the West African country of Niger. Upon returning home, I spent three years working in residence life and student activities at a small college in southwest Georgia. My work inspired me to return to school and I earned my master’s in Higher Education Administration from Boston University. I am thrilled to be here and can’t wait to meet y’all. Stop by and I’ll be glad to help with anything or share stories from my travels.
