Daniel Urrutia

While Nampa, Idaho may be my hometown, I fell in love with Moscow while gaining my degree in Management and Human Resources in 2014. I've worked with the Housing & Residence Life department since 2012. Initially I worked as an Information Desk Attendant, then the Summer Conference Manager and now I am a Resident Director for Wallace and McConnell Hall. I have learned a great deal from my colleagues and look forward to continue learning and developing myself as professional. 

Each semester I look forward to guiding and mentoring students of varying backgrounds. Our residents are students leaders and strive to make a difference in the community. Being a student that was actively involved in many organizations and departments, I highly encourage any student to go out and get involved. You never know who you will run into and if you can make a change in someone’s world.

What I love most about Idaho is the ability to connect with people on campus and the feeling that we are a Vandal family. Go Vandals!

Known Fact: Daniel always has the best candy in his office. His dream job is to become a storm chaser!
