NIC hires new residence hall coordinator
|photo1|North Idaho College recently hired Yong Choo as the new coordinator of the NIC Residence Hall.
Choo completed a master's degree in counseling in May and holds a bachelor's degree in broadcast communication from Washington State University.
While working toward his undergraduate degree, Choo served for two years as a resident assistant in the co-ed residence hall of 255 students at Washington State University.
Choo was a graduate assistant resident director for one year, supervising a residence hall of 400 students as well as 10 resident assistants and three hall presidents at the University of Idaho.
In 2004, Choo became the graduate assistant of programming at the University of Idaho. For the past year, Choo managed budgets and promoted educational and social programs for 26 resident assistants.
Choo has lived off-campus, in residence halls and in fraternities while attaining his degrees and said his recent experience with student life has helped him understand all aspects of college living environments.
“I'm very excited for the coming year at NIC,” Choo said. “I'm looking forward to working with the students and taking on some of the unique challenges of on-campus housing at a two-year college.”
The NIC Residence Hall is now vacant for the summer. The hall has a capacity of 202 students and will have six resident advisors and one senior resident advisor this fall.For More Information
