Aloha Everyone! My name is Colby Chaput and this is going to be my second year as a Resident Assistant, and first year as a Head Resident Assistant. I was born and raised in Swanzey, NH. I am an outgoing, fun guy and I am looking forward to meeting new residents and seeing all the returners. I currently am doing transfer credits to go to SNHU to get my bachelors degree in Criminology, but I dream of being a juvenile probation officer one day. Fall is my favorite season. I love to play any sort of sport especially basketball, soccer, golf, and ultimate Frisbee. Hiking, being generally adventurous, mountain biking, spelunking, and finding a great swimming-hole are my true passions though as well as eating great food. In my free time I play video games occasionally and love to just hang out. Anytime you want to stop in and hang out or just talk you can always find me around in the rec lounge or in my room, located in 101!
Hi everyone, my name is Kayla Barnes and I am a Radiologic Technology Student here at NHTI. This is my third year here and my fourth semester as a resident assistant. Last year I was co-president of the Campus Activities Board on campus and highly recommend that you guys check it out. I love spending free time outside hiking and exploring nature as well as playing volleyball. I'll be hitting the books hard this year but please feel free to stop by my room (323) anytime you need me. I look forward to having another great year here in Strout Hall.
