Hi, I am Sheridan Menard, and I am the resident assistant for Parsons second floor upper-class. I am from Boise, Idaho and am currently a junior. I came to Saint Martin’s as a biology major and since then I have also added a second major-educational studies. After I graduate from Saint Martin’s, I hope to get into a physician assistant program, and see where that leads me. Not only am I an RA this year, but I am also the President for the National Residence Halls Honorary, and a Benedictine Scholar. I am excited for the coming year and to continue being a Saint!

Hi! My name is Cor Kruithof! I am a native of the small town of Troy, Ohio. However, my family moved to the Tacoma, Wash. area to be closer to relatives when I was quite young. Thus, I like to consider myself a native Washingtonian. I am also a former glassblower, who studied the skill for two years in high school. Now, I am a civil engineering major, and mathematics minor at SMU, along with being one of the Parsons Residence Hall RAs. I love to play board games, read, and all things Harry Potter. If you see me in the halls or in my room, please feel free to stop and chat!
Hi friends! My name is Abby Lowrie, and I am the second-floor RA on the first-year side. I am a senior communication studies major with a minor in gender and identity studies. I’m from the small town of Yelm, Wash., and look forward to a career in some sort of journalism or graphic design. I’m a lover of animals, sustainable living, and a mental health advocate. I can be found in my room or the Belltower office if you ever need someone to vent to. I look forward to the adventures we embark on as a community this year, and getting to know you. My door is always open. ☺
Hey Saints and welcome back! My name is Raedel Rivero and I’m a third-year student going for a major in communications. I am the resident assistant of Parson’s third floor upper class.

Hello Saints, my name is Keevan Forbes-Kashani and I am the third floor Baran RA. I am currently in my junior year of the civil engineering program. I was born and raised in the Olympia area, so I know my way around here. One of my favorite things to do in my free time is to ride my motorcycle, so it’s only fitting to say that I will miss the summer. But with summer passing, I’m excited to further my education and spend the year with everyone on and off campus. I’m always up to meet new people, so if you see me around, don’t hesitate to say hi!
