Checking In with CD Brian

Hey, I am Eric. I will be the first floor CA in North Hall! I am a sophomore student from Colorado. I enjoy doing spontaneous things such as yoga, teaching myself how to do things, like play the piano, and engage in other personal goals. I also really love Harry Potter! I am involved with the University of Redlands ASUR Senate and can’t wait to meet all of you very soon!

I’m Brian! I am a senior here at Redlands studying International Relations, Psychology and Government. I have been involved with Residence Life since my freshman year and am thrilled to be the Community Director of North. I spent my fall of 2008 studying political science and French in Geneva, Switzerland and was able to visit seven other amazing countries while there. Aside from school and traveling, I am heavily involved with student government, my non-Greek siblinghood FIE, three honor societies, clubs and community service. I can’t wait to start an exciting year!
