Transitions in Residential Life
Please join us in thanking Christy Clinton for her service to Residential Life and congratulating her on her new position at Cal State Fullerton. Christy has been Community Director for Missions A, since July 2008. She has had many accomplishments, including being the CD for the first-year of the Living Learning Communities pilot implementation, being a lead coordinator for the STEM Living-Learning Community, and being a staff member on the recent SYE Abroad to Florence, Italy. Christy will begin her new position as the Program Coordinator for the Department of Housing and Residential Life at CS Fullerton next week. In her new role, she will be advising RHA, doing weekend programming, supervising programming assistants and working with summer camps and conferences. We will miss Christy in Residential Life and wish her all the best in this transition.
Also, please make sure to add a new blog called "Life in the Residence Halls" to your favorites http://usdresidentiallife.blogspot.com. It will be updated weekly!

Message from Sean Horrigan
This is long overdue but the past 10 days have flown by in an instant. Let me introduce you to my baby boys. They were born on Tuesday, January 31st. Liam Aiden (dark hair) was born at 5:19pm weighing 5lbs 12oz. His brother Keaton Alan (blonde hair) was born a moment later at 5:20pm weighing 4lbs 5oz. Keaton was small enough that he needed some extra attention but we were all able to come home together as a healthy family on the evening of Super Bowl Sunday.
Message from Kenny Eng
Here's a note from Kenny Eng in the Vice President for Student Affairs office who recently returned to campus after his accident last Thanksgiving:
I just wanted to write to say how grateful I am for everyone's well wishes, prayers, and support. It meant so much to me to get so many cards and notes from people all across Student Affairs and USD. It's great to be back and I look forward to fewer life-threatening incidents this semester. Hope to see you all soon!
