South Hill Vista
Hello! My name is Anthony Dorsett. Currently I am in my second year at the Idaho College of Law, and I am studying to pursue a career in patent prosecution. I have lived in the university apartments for a little over a year and half now, and I am looking forward to being a part of the apartment community as an ACA.
My hobbies include running, weight lifting, hunting and playing intramural sports. When I was in the fifth grade, I participated in a monthly circus school where we learned to juggle, ride unicycles and jump on pogo sticks. None of which I can do today.
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.
