About Student StaffCommunity Adviser Staff

Each community of students has a Community Adviser (CA) who is selected and trained to assist with student concerns, be they personal, social, or academic, as well as general college and community issues. CAs work to develop programming that builds relationships between the students and promotes a sense of community throughout the residence hall. The CA team is "on duty" during the evening and weekend hours. Additionally, CAs are trained to handle emergency situations, enforce college and residence hall policies and regulations, as well as carry out general administrative tasks.

    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?

    I am from Minnetonka, Minnesota. You may be curious as to why I moved all the way to Central Oregon. The answer is simple: the Tourism and Outdoor Leadership program… which I am no longer in! I stayed in Bend because of the nature, the friendly people, and of course, Central Oregon Community College where I am taking general courses before studying naturopathic medicine.  I love living in Juniper Hall because there is always something to do and someone to hang out with.  It’s a great environment! A fun fact about me is that I was an exchange student in Denmark for one year!

    I am from Rockaway Beach, Oregon, a small coastal town in Tilllamook County. I chose COCC for the beautiful outdoors, small class sizes and the quality of life Bend has to offer. I am currently studying Exercise and Sport Science with a minor in Military Science. The best part about living in Juniper Hall is the feeling of having a community of peers in small location that have similar goals and interests! A fun fact about me is that I am an Army ROTC Cadet!

    I am 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. The sunny weather and hiking were also 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 also knit hats and scarves.


    We are currently in the process of hiring additional Community Advisers in anticipation of our new, expanded residence hall! Stay tuned for information on our newest team members!
