Posted By Christopher F. Ferraro, Sunday, February 9, 2014

Hello Delaware/Maryland!

Happy 2014! We wanted to start out the New Year by beginning to periodically send out a newsletter for happenings in our region as well as in MACUHO. Please check out our first issue!

Your Regional Coordinators,

Chris Ferraro & Tricia Walmsley

Meet Your Delaware/Maryland Regional Coordinators!

Tricia Walmsley - Mount St. Mary’s University

Hello Delaware and Maryland!

Happy 2014 and Spring semester! We hope you all had a wonderful holiday and are geared up for the start of the new semester. This email is twofold! I first wanted to take a second to introduce myself as the New Regional Coordinator for Maryland and Delaware! My name is Tricia Walmsley and I currently work at Mount St. Mary’s University in Emmitsburg, Maryland. I moved back to this region a year ago after spending two years in South Carolina and am very excited to be "home” again! I am looking forward to working with the region in a variety of ways over the next several years! Chris and I have some ideas for this coming year but want to know what you want as well! Please do not hesitate to get in touch with me! I can be reached at walmsley@msmary.edu!

Chris Ferraro - Towson University

Greetings Delaware and Maryland!

I hope your Spring semesters and new year is off to a great start! I am excited to be returning as one of your Regional Coordinators for this year! For those of you I have not been able to connect with yet, I currently work at Towson University just North of Baltimore. I have been here 2.5 years working as a Residence Life Coordinator. I moved to Towson from the Northeast where I earned my Bachelors at UConn and my Masters at Springfield College in Massachusetts. Oddly enough, I am currently working on a second Masters now at Towson. I am looking forward to a great year for our region and welcome any ideas or questions you may have about MACUHO! Please email me at CFerraro@towson.edu. Stay tuned for upcoming events this Spring!

Michael Robbins

Posted By Maryland/Delaware Regional Coordinators, Thursday, June 9, 2011

Michael Robbins 
Director of Residence Life 
McDaniel College

Where I went to School: I went to New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) for Chemical Engineering, was betrayed by the evils of calculus, and then enrolled in a joint program with NJIT and Rutgers-Newark where I earned a BA and MA in History from both institutions.

What are you most passionate about in the field: The chance to do so many different things and interact with a new population every year.

Who has been your biggest influence in your career: Lisa Pierce, my supervisor when I was a graduate assistant with NJIT’s Residence Life staff.

What book should someone read (fiction or non-fiction): Guns, Germs, and Steel by Jared Diamond for some good history, or the whole line of Dresden Files books by Jim Butcher for fun.

Something exciting you are planning to do this summer: Get my older daughter ready for kindergarten.

Something fun that you do outside of your job or something we should know about you: I can waste time with the best of them playing WoW.

As a CHO, do you have any advice for our membership: When you take a new position, especially at entry level, don’t let yourself fall into the trap of assuming you’ll only be there for a few years and so you don’t look into your new community for things to get involved in outside of your job. If you don’t find some connection to the new locality other than your job, your burn-out factor is higher and you are more likely to look to leave sooner, kind of fulfilling your own prophecy that led to not getting involved in the first place.
