Apartment Community Assistants
The Apartment Community Assistant (ACA) is a member of the Residence Life Team and is responsible for the general administration, development and implementation of student life in the University Apartment communities.
Under the direction and supervision of the Resident Director (RD), the ACA is responsible for providing resources to create a community that supports and enhances all aspects of student life. An ACA is a full-time undergraduate, graduate or law student at the University of Idaho that lives in the University Apartment community and acts as a representative of Housing & Residence Life.
South Hill Vista
I am a third year law student, who grew up in southern Utah but came to the University of Idaho after living and working in Pocatello, Idaho. Before law school I worked in higher education including housing, Greek life, admission, student conduct, and campus activities.
My family lives in South Hill Vista. My wife teaches ballroom dance at the University. As an avid college football fan, I’ll be in heaven for the next five months. When it’s not college football season, I enjoy long distance running and my family enjoys fishing and camping.
Southhill and Elmwood
I'm an ACA for the lower South Hill area. I am a 2L in law school here. In my free time I like to practice Brazilian Jiu Jitsu at V7 Martial Arts here in Moscow. My life goal in painting is to turn a thrift store painting into something totally anachronistic.
I also tend to my four houseplants. I take pride in their names. For example, my hosta is named Jimmy Hosta and I call my fern “Phineas the Fern”. I love puns so much. If you enjoy puns, I suggest the card game Punderdome.
My name is Trish Taylor and I live in the 464 building. Although I am originally from the Tri Cities, last year my family moved to Sandpoint, Idaho. I am a second year law student, and the worst bowler I know. My favorite quote is from To Kill a Mockingbird: “We're paying the highest tribute you can pay a man. We trust him to do right. It's that simple.”
I was an RA at Eastern Oregon University for two years during undergrad. I love that our apartment area has so many families. It's easy to interact with families playing on the playground, and the area feels more like a community rather than just a bunch of students. Families in the area are a healthy reminder that there is more to life than having your nose in a text book.
