Upper Commonweath Avenue
Assistant Director of Residence Life for Upper Commonwealth Ave.
Hello! I’m a life-long Massachusetts resident. I completed my undergraduate degree at the state’s flagship University, UMass Amherst. I loved my college experience – so much so that I pursued my Master’s degree at Suffolk University, concentrating on Higher Education Administration. I worked in a career services office, but realized that the day-to-day issues that students face in campus living was far more interesting than looking at resumes every day. That realization led me to BU, where I’ve played a role in 4 of the 6 BU neighborhoods! In my spare time, I enjoy exploring various neighborhoods around Boston, either by foot or on the T. I love to travel and my three favorite cities to visit are NYC, Paris, and Perth, Australia. In college, I was a DJ (carting around my vinyl in milk crates…) and listening to music is still one of my favorite pastimes. My genres of choice are varied – from yacht rock to metal to opera. If you have a new band to share, let me know – it’s so much easier now with instant gratification, but I do sort of miss digging through the stacks at a record store.

My name Aysia Thomas and I am originally from Boston (Roxbury), MA. Through my undergraduate experience at the University of New Hampshire I managed to receive a B.A in communication and a minor in kinesiology. I developed a passion for student affair services and creating . The rewards of this work propelled me to enroll in a master’s degree program at the University of Rhode Island. I am excited to be back home in Boston where I can live out my dream of being part of the BU community and explore the city!!

Residence Hall Director, 33 Harry Agganis Way
Years 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. 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.

Residence Hall Director, 1019 Commonwealth Avenue
My name is Jordanne Miller and I am so happy to be here at Boston University! I grew up in New Hampshire, but I really consider Boston to be my home. I am a double Terrier graduating from CAS with a B.A. in Psychology and from BU Wheelock with an Ed.M. in Higher Education Administration. While attending BU I had the privilege of working my way through the residence life system. In my sophomore year I was a member of the RHC at Myles Standish Hall, as a junior and senior I served as a Resident Advisor at 575 Comm Ave (aka Hojo), and as a grad student I was both a Graduate RA in the Brownstones of Upper Bay State Road and the Graduate Assistant of Operations for the Dean of Students Office. I was also a sister of Alpha Delta Pi Rho Chapter here at BU. After graduation I worked for a couple of years at Salve Regina University in the gorgeous Newport, RI as an Area Coordinator in residence life. I am certified barre and yoga instructor, lover of the beach, reading, and Grey’s Anatomy, and I have danced my whole life. I am passionate about making the student experience as best as it can be for fellow Terriers, so feel free to reach out if something is happening or you just want someone to chat with!
