Maria Burks

Resident Assistant (RA) - Woods 4th Oak

Major: Psychology, Pre-Med
Year: Sophomore
Hometown: Huber Heights, Ohio

Hey Raiders! My name is Maria. I am the RA for 4th Oak in the Woods during the 2017-2018 school year. Currently, I’m a sophomore and Psychology major on the Pre-Med track. However, I am still exploring. In other words, I haven’t fully figured out what I what to do the rest of my life. I am from Huber Heights, Ohio, so only about 15 minutes away from WSU. I love having variety in life and experiencing new things. You can often find me hiking, listening to music, eating, or sleeping. I don’t have a favorite type of music, but when I do find something I like, you will probably see me badly dancing to it on campus while I’m walking to class.

My personality is loud, energetic, and empathic. Due to my personality, I wanted to be an RA. I want to meet new people, encounter different experiences, and have the opportunity to better the college experience for students.

My favorite thing about living on campus is the independence and sense of community I have experienced. When living on campus, you are in charge of yourself, for better or for worse, and you get to learn who you are as an individual. Also, I have met many of my friends by living on campus, which has given me the sense of community I wanted from WSU. I hope everyone has a great school year and feel free to stop and say hello if you see me.
