RA of the month: Lindsey Bak 

Lindsey Bak is a first-year Resident Assistant in Dickinson Hall. She is the kindest, most genuine human who will go out of her way to help anyone and is not afraid to ask for help herself. She brings a fierce, outspoken energy to the RA position and inspires everyone to rise to her level of dedication. Her bulletin boards, like “Healthy Habits Are Not Autumn-atic” are creative and fun, offering tips to help first-year students succeed. 

In her interactions with students and fellow RAs, she shows an unparalleled compassion and makes sure everyone feels heard. Because she is someone who cares and will show up no matter what, she is someone people want on their side to handle any kind of situation. She is a great motivator, a supporter, collaborator, and friend.  

She takes initiative to plan exciting and meaningful programs, utilizing campus partners such as the Health Center as a resource. She follows through on her ideas and gets everyone on board with what she’s planning. I couldn’t have asked to work with a more organized, communicative, and professional person. Lindsey is a true leader. 

And because I know she loves the show Friends: Lindsey, “you’re so kind. You’re so generous. You’re so wonderfully weird,” as Mike says to Phoebe. 

Maintainer of the month: Evan Gaulin 

Evan Gaulin is a maintainer in Lammers Hall.

Since we first met in the summer, Evan has been one of the friendliest people in the entire building. Not only does he continuously check in with my RA’s and have conversations with them, but he also interacts with residents as he is working throughout the day.

Whenever there is a problem, he is always available and willing to help. He thrives on hard work and is always on standby whenever I need him for any maintenance concerns.

Every single one of my RAs have only said positive things about Evan and consistently highlight his willingness to be a part of the community.

Words cannot describe how much I appreciate his impact on the building not just as a maintainer, but as a member of our Lammers community as well. Thank you, Evan!
