Hello, I'm Paula Czirr, the Residence Life Manager. I'm originally from Superior, NE, but graduated from Peru State College, in Peru, NE. I've earned 21 years of experience in Residence Life. I really enjoy what Residence Life is all about. On the personal side, I really dig sports and competition of all types - especially football & softball. I cheer for the Huskers on Saturday and the Steelers on Sunday. I am a huge fan of the College World Series - both baseball & softball, and have been known to sit and watch curling. I am totally thrilled when I can spend uninterrupted time with my family – spouse Ty, our cat Sassy, and the dogs - Harrison, Larry & Jackson.

Tayler Coats, Resident Assistant

Jenna RA My name is Tayler Coats and I am your new 2 long resident hall advisor. I am a third semester Biology major at NIC, but I am originally from Southern Idaho. My first order of business is a self-introduction! Between work and school, I stay pretty busy. On the weekends you will find me at Kootenai Hospital- my workplace. During the week, you will see me around campus. I lead a relatively laid back life and like to keep things stress-free. My friends would describe me as a bit of a comic – I love to laugh and I’m always searching for the humor in things. BUT I would describe myself as a wallflower-I have always been someone who prefers to stay in the shadows. I have a small bundle of friends that I keep very close to me but I am excited to expand my connections. I am extremely grateful to be the new addition to the resident life team. I am eager to meet and learn about each and every one of you!
