Student Staff

Assistant Residence Director - Basevi Adamo

My name is Basevi Adamo. Originally, I am from Redding, California. My major is Social Science with a direction into Community Development. I chose Central Oregon Community College because I love the small class sizes and the people of Central Oregon are awesome. Not only could I study full time but there is always someone who wants to go play outdoors. The best part of living in Juniper Hall is the amount of people you get to meet and become friends with. A fun fact about myself is that last Winter I rafted the Grand Canyon.

The Assistant Residence Director is often times a returning staff member whose duties include assisting in the coordination of community programming and serving in a leadership role with the Resident Assistant staff.

Resident Assistant Staff

Each section of 20-25 students has a Resident Assistant (RA) who is selected and trained to assist with student concerns, personal, social, and academic needs, and general college and community issues. RAs develop and put on programs in an effort to build relationships between the students and develop a sense of community throughout the residence hall. The RA Staff are "on duty" during the evening and weekend hours. Additionally, the RA staff are trained to handle emergency situations, enforce college and residence hall policies and regulations, and carry out general administrative tasks.

  • Roxanne Kanable 

My name is Roxie Kanable and I was born and raised in the small town of Boring, OR, and yes it is quite boring. I chose COCC because of the small class sizes, beautiful location, and close connection with OSU Cascades. I am studying Natural Resources Conservation Technology through both COCC and OSU. The best part about living in Juniper Hall is all of the close friendships that develop throughout the year. Some of my closest friends are from my first year in Juniper Hall. A fun fact about me is that my ACLs inside my knees are from two different people (cadaver donations)! Weird huh?

  • Anthony DeVito 

My name is Anthony DeVito and I am from Reno Nevada the biggest little city in the world. I am a criminal justice major and will be graduating this year. I actualy found COCC while on a family trip and when I discovered that they had a great criminal justice program I decided to pursue a degree here. The best thing about J-Hall is hands down the people that you will meet and the relationships you will develop. A fun fact about myself is that I'm an EMT!

  • Jennifer Nelson 

My name is Jenn Nelson, from Lake Oswego Oregon. I am currently completing prerequisites for nursing school. I chose COCC because financially it fit my family's budget, that there was a residence hall, and the sunny weather and hiking were a plus. The best part of living in Juniper Hall is the great opportunity to meet new friends as well as being on campus. A fun fact about me is that I spent a month in Ireland this past summer visiting kids I nannied and I knits hats and scarves.

  • Kavya Pendakur 

    My name is Kavya Pendakur. I am originally from India, but I have been living in Forest Grove, Oregon for about 8 years. I began attending COCC last January 2013 with the goal of getting a biology degree. I chose COCC because of its location as well as for its professors, who are all well qualified and student oriented. Also, COCC is one of the few community colleges in the Northwest with on-campus housing. Personally, living in a residence hall setting has given me a sense of community and a way to connect with other goal-oriented students. Fun fact: I'm learning to play the ukelele!
