Meg White

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.

Pauline Gauthier

I was born and raised near a small lake in Central Maine. Following several years of working with a United States Senator and later operating a small business in south central Maine, I came to study at Boston University.  As a first generation non-traditional student, I completed my undergraduate degree in the College of Liberal Arts (now the College of Arts & Sciences) where I studied psychology, with a minor in religion. Fortunate to spend a semester studying abroad and even lived on a kibbutz, I attended the University of Haifa (ISREAL) in a National Honors Program in Psychology and, while there, spent a week in Poland participating in the “March of the Living”.  I pursued graduate studies in counseling and education, completing my clinical internship at McLean Hospital in Belmont, Massachusetts. I then served on their clinical counseling staff for three years. In 1995 I joined the Boston University Residence Life team.  During my tenure here, between summers and academic years, I have worked in each residential campus; currently serving as the Hall Director for 10 Buick Street. I enjoy getting to know my students, student staff and University colleagues.  My mentor, of blessed memory, Elie Wiesel taught me that it is important to learn from our students.  My life is richer for these lessons and we continue to learn from each other each and every day.  When not at BU, I enjoy traveling, relaxing in Maine and spending quality time with my family. You will often find me by a body of water.

Please feel free to stop by my office for a conversation.

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. 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.

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!
