 Point Perspectives


"OPPORTUNITY TO GROW"

Hey y’all! My name is Cheyenne Brocker (she/her/hers) and I am currently in my second year as the Watson Residence Hall Director here at UWSP. When interviewing with our team, I was looking for a group of people that I could spend time with in and out of work since my loved ones aren’t super close to campus. I was able to find that here! Between summer nights on the square, watching the Bachelorette together, or even just grabbing lunch, it’s been great to have a team of folks who I can connect with outside of being a Hall Director. The best part of my experience so far (aside from my students, of course), has been the opportunity for professional development. I have had the opportunity to serve on committees within our department, be a committee chair, serve on a hiring committee for different positions across campus, and most recently joined an ad-hoc committee for the advancement of First-Gen students. If there’s something you’re passionate about, our Central Staff will work with you to make it happen! I am thrilled to be a Pointer I hope that you see can UWSP as your future home. Go Dawgs!​

"PERSONAL AND PROFESSIONAL GROWTH"

My name is Emily Johnson (she/her), I am in my fourth year here at UWSP and am the Complex Director for Pray-Sims and Smith Halls. In reflecting on my time at Point, there are three main reasons why I continue to come back and work in housing at UWSP. The first being the students! We hear it all the time in our field, the students are the reasons we show up to work every day, and at Point we strive to keep the students at the center of our why. I get reminded every day how amazing our students are and the things they can and will achieve. The second reason I love working at Point is the other Hall Directors I get to work with! We are all supportive of each other and want to see each other grow and learn in our roles. I remember leaving my on-campus interview four years ago and thinking to myself “I can see myself here and working on this team!” It was one of the best feelings I could have had from an on campus. Finally, the opportunities I have gained in this role. I have been able to work with campus partners, serve on various committees, and create a complex community between two buildings, which allows me to continue to gain professional development each year. In my time in Housing and Residence Life at UWSP, I have seen the changes we are making to better our department, the ways we keep our students at the core of our work, and the growth I have had personally and professionally from being in this department.​

"YOUR VOICE IS HEARD"

I have been a part of the team as of January 2021 when I first started as a Graduate Student Hall Director. This past June, I transitioned from a Graduate role to a full-time Hall Director, and they made it so easy and comfortable for me to do so. Even as a graduate student, you feel no less just because of your experience and role. You are treated with respect, your ideas and opinions matter, you have a voice that is heard, and there are so many different opportunities to grow in this position and field. When it comes to your student staff, it feels amazing and you feel accomplished when you watch them all grow into the best versions of themselves and accomplish so much whether that is professionally, personally, or in school, in just a short period of time - on hard days, you remember the ‘WHY’ you chose this field, and it is all worth it.​

"COMMUNITY AND CONNECTION"

Howdy! My name is Rylee Fabry (he/him/his), as a new Hall Director coming from another professional position, I was nervous to be joining a much larger team than just a department of myself at my previous institution. During my transition to UWSP, I have been challenged and supported by not only my supervisor but also by my colleagues around campus. I have been given unique opportunities such as serving on scholarship committees, co-chairing the professional staff selection committee and even being able to become involved within the UMR-ACUHO region, the professional organization for Housing and Residence Life staff members. When looking at my next position, I wanted to be semi-close to my immediate family members as I wanted to continue to be able to see my niece on a regular basis and still be able to be far enough away that my family would have to call me before randomly showing up. Outside of work, I have been able to find a community of PokémonGo enthusiasts just like me and be able to have connections outside of UWSP and have a sense of belonging to the Stevens Point Community. I am excited to continue to become actively involved in the Stevens Point Community as I continue my journey here at UWSP, it truly has started to feel like home.​
