Meet the East Hall Staff
Mackenzi Bolyard-Pizana, Resident Assistant - East 250G
Year/Major: junior, Spanish & Environmental Studies major
Hometown: Uniontown, OH
Favorite thing about Hiram: Hiram has not only become my comfort zone, but my home away from home. This campus is a place where students can freely express themselves to gain the confidence and comfortability to become strong leaders and real world ready. Thus far, the college has presented and given me endless opportunities and experiences. This would not be possible without the immediate connections and relationships with other students, faculty, and staff members. The community that has been established here at Hiram has truly driven students to achieve great things and the desire to conquer more.
Born and raised in Uniontown, Ohio, I grew up in a Mexican household where diversity and culture has always been celebrated. I am a bilingual English and Spanish speaker and I love learning about new ideas, exploring the arts, meeting new people and traveling the world! Here at Hiram I am a Resident Assistant, a Teaching Assistant, a Terrier Guide, Campus Visit Assistant, a member of the eclectic scholars program, LUNA club, Intercultural Forum Club, Dance Team, Sustainability Club, and have studied abroad to Spain for 14 weeks.
Following Hiram, I would like to be able to participate in the Peace Corp in Central or South America to further my Spanish speaking skills and my experiences with aiding people and the environment. I aspire to continue traveling and meting people who will influence me to make a difference on this planet.

Jeremy Staley, Resident Assistant - East 350F
Year/Major: senior, 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
