Resident Assistant (RA) - Woods 3rd Oak

Major: Psychology
Year: Junior
Hometown: Trotwood


Hey guys! My name is Mikala and I will be your RA for 3rd floor Oak. I am studying to earn my Bachelors of Science in Psychology. I love the energy and diversity life here at Wright State University and can't wait to enter my third year here as your RA. I was born and raised in Trotwood, OH with my family consisting of my mom, dad, older sister, and my two little nephews. I love to travel, listen to music, go shopping, going out to eat, play sports, and watch movies. My two favorite sports are swimming and basketball. I'm also up to watch a good football game whenever. If you guys need to get a hold of me please shoot me an email anytime. Can't wait to meet you all during 2017-2018 school year!!!


Why did you choose to be an RA?  I knew that the RA position would help me discover more about myself and challenge me in ways to better equip me in the working field of psychology. This position pushes you into becoming more social and that was what I needed in order thrive as an individual. I became an RA to gain hands on experience in my major and help encourage others to get more out of their college experience by stepping out of their comfort zone and discovering something new about themselves.


What is your favorite thing about living on campus? My favorite things about living on campus was meeting new people and finding more ways I could potentially get involved at Wright State. By living on campus you are able to create long lasting friendships, fun study groups, and attend some pretty awesome programs free for residents throughout the year. I really enjoyed the popcorn and movie night screenings every other weekend with my friends and fellow staff members in 2016-2017 and can't wait to see the new programs they will come up with in 2017-2018 school year.
