Brian Emerick: Smith Hall

In the past decade, OWU has transformed the residential experience, with new apartments, new and renovated houses, a completely renovated Smith Hall serving as a first-year community, and equally important, a renewed mission from Residential Life staff and student leaders to foster community and help students. Over the past four years, Brian Emerick, director of residential life, has overseen this work, from improving room selection and move-in processes, to organizing fun events, to reimaging the role of resident assistants.
