Meet the East Hall Staff
Courtney Bukach, Resident Assistant - East 250G
Year/Major: junior, Management & Enviornmental Studies major
Hometown: Parma, OH
Favorite thing about Hiram: Originally seeing myself at a large university, Hiram has completely altered my views on higher education. Taking classes on a more intimate campus provides genuine relationships, personal help in the classroom, and countless resources for the future. I feel that smaller class sizes have helped me to achieve more than I ever thought possible, while the campus community serves as a continuous support system. At Hiram, it is very difficult for anyone to fall behind.
I am a second year Resident Assistant in East Hall. I plan to major in Management and minor in Environmental Studies and Entrepreneurship. Aside from being an RA, I also work at the James H. Barrow Field Station and am involved with the Campus Recycling Program. My passion is working with horses, and I am a member of the Hiram College Equestrian Team. After graduation, I am not yet sure what career path I will follow, but I do plan to involve myself in a year of service either with the Peach Corps or a like organization. Oh, and I love Hiram!
Alys Dutton, Resident Assistant - East 250F
Year/Major: senior, Creative Writing major
Hometown: Columbia, MD
Favorite thing about Hiram: I live to wax lyrical about the opportunities Hiram affords -- chances to star in shows, publish research, make real change happen as an undergraduate -- that make it unique in a sea of Ohio colleges steeped with inflexible tradition and seniority-over-skill. Hiram is going to be what you want it to be, if you're ambitious enough. Do something to be proud of and watch as your school falls in step behind you.
I'm a creative writing major and a workaholic in love with Residence Life at Hiram College. In my extracurricular time I post shameful (albeit dogged) times as a varsity cross country runner, sing in the chamber choir, and am a member of PRYSM and the Hiram Writer's Association. On breaks, you can find me in Chicago, Illinois, eating Kraft mac and cheese and hanging out with my cat.
Matt Moore, Resident Assistant - East 350G
Year/Major: senior, Communication & Sociology major
Hometown: Columbus, OH
Favorite thing about Hiram: My favorite thing about Hiram is the people - always willing to help and are incredibly friendly.
I was born in Michigan and have moved seven times. I play football at Hiram. I am a huge Bears, Cubs, Blackhawks, and Michigan fan. I am relearning to skateboard.
Jeremy Staley, Resident Assistant - East 350F
Year/Major: junior, Integrated Language Arts major
Hometown: Cincinnatti, OH
Favorite thing about Hiram: My favorite thing about Hiram is how close everyone is as a community. I've heard complaints that Hiram is so small it's like a high school. Yes Hiram's small, but its what builds the great sense of community we have here at Hiram. From my first day at Hiram I started making friendships that will last much longer than my four years in college. Without a doubt my favorite thing about Hiram is all the great friendships I've made here and how supportive everyone is in the Hiram family.
I never know what to do when someone asks for a bio, because I always feel that a short depiction of my life will never express anything meaningful that I've accomplished in my life. Therefore instead, I've provided a quote that holds the meaning in my life. "You never need an argument against the use of violence, you need an argument for it." ~ Noam Chomsky
