Lydia Killea - Theophilus Tower Resident Director

I join the Vandal family from a small hometown in central Montana. I received a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from the University of Montana. I am still a very proud Griz alumnus. From Missoula, my pursuit of graduate school took me to the mountains of northern Arizona. I obtained a Masters of Education in Counseling-Student Affairs. After completing my masters, my pursuit of a career brought me to Moscow. I was drawn to the strong sense of community and opportunity to truly make a difference in students’ lives.

Pride and tradition are two of the most important things that I took away from my undergraduate experience. They are something I try to instill in my students every day because if you’re not passionate about what you are doing then why do it? I challenge the students that I engage with to have a reason or purpose behind everything they do because it is through that purpose that they will achieve success.

“The goal is not to be perfect by the end. The goal is to be better today.” –Simon Sinek
