Hey y’all! My name is Cheyenne Brocker (she/her/hers) and I am currently in my second year as the Watson Residence Hall Director here at UWSP. When interviewing with our team, I was looking for a group of people that I could spend time with in and out of work since my loved ones aren’t super close to campus. I was able to find that here! Between summer nights on the square, watching the Bachelorette together, or even just grabbing lunch, it’s been great to have a team of folks who I can connect with outside of being a Hall Director. The best part of my experience so far (aside from my students, of course), has been the opportunity for professional development. I have had the opportunity to serve on committees within our department, be a committee chair, serve on a hiring committee for different positions across campus, and most recently joined an ad-hoc committee for the advancement of First-Gen students. If there’s something you’re passionate about, our Central Staff will work with you to make it happen! I am thrilled to be a Pointer I hope that you see can UWSP as your future home. Go Dawgs!
I have been a part of the team as of January 2021 when I first started as a Graduate Student Hall Director. This past June, I transitioned from a Graduate role to a full-time Hall Director, and they made it so easy and comfortable for me to do so. Even as a graduate student, you feel no less just because of your experience and role. You are treated with respect, your ideas and opinions matter, you have a voice that is heard, and there are so many different opportunities to grow in this position and field. When it comes to your student staff, it feels amazing and you feel accomplished when you watch them all grow into the best versions of themselves and accomplish so much whether that is professionally, personally, or in school, in just a short period of time – on hard days, you remember the ‘WHY’ you chose this field, and it is all worth it.
Howdy! My name is Rylee Fabry (he/him/his), as a new Hall Director coming from another professional position, I was nervous to be joining a much larger team than just a department of myself at my previous institution. During my transition to UWSP, I have been challenged and supported by not only my supervisor but also by my colleagues around campus. I have been given unique opportunities such as serving on scholarship committees, co-chairing the professional staff selection committee and even being able to become involved within the UMR-ACUHO region, the professional organization for Housing and Residence Life staff members. When looking at my next position, I wanted to be semi-close to my immediate family members as I wanted to continue to be able to see my niece on a regular basis and still be able to be far enough away that my family would have to call me before randomly showing up. Outside of work, I have been able to find a community of PokémonGo enthusiasts just like me and be able to have connections outside of UWSP and have a sense of belonging to the Stevens Point Community. I am excited to continue to become actively involved in the Stevens Point Community as I continue my journey here at UWSP, it truly has started to feel like home.
