Stephanie Mecca - Wallace West Resident Director
I graduated from the University of Wyoming where I worked as a resident assistant. From Old Faithful to the boulders of Vedauwoo in Laramie, Wyo., I am a Wyomingite born and raised. I completed my master’s degree in higher education at Texas Tech University where I worked as a graduate resident director. After two fun years in Texas, I decided the north is where I belong.
I found my way up to beautiful Moscow, Idaho, where I happily watch over Wallace West and McConnell. In my free time I host movie nights (My library has over 1000 movies), jog around Moscow, and create pottery. I am a people person who loves to get to know each student’s and staff member’s unique characteristics.
Emily Smith - Wallace East Area Coordinator
Originally from Fort Wayne, Indiana, I received my bachelor’s degree in social work from Indiana University. While at IU, I took on multiple student leadership roles and learned so much about myself and others through those experiences. After graduation, I took on a full time position at IU in Residential Programs and Services as a House Manager. In this role, I was able to advise a student conduct board, supervise resident assistants and manage front desk operations.
That experience is where I learned that I wanted to pursue a career working with college students. I continued on to Murray State University where I worked as a Residence Director and earned my master’s degree in post-secondary education administration.
I am thrilled to be working at the University of Idaho! The students here are ambitious and continually demonstrate care and compassion for one another. I am excited to learn and grow with the many students, staff, faculty and community members here in Moscow.
Feel free to give me a call, stop by my office or send me an email if you have any questions, concerns or kudos related to Wallace and McConnell!
