Assistant Resident Director

 

E-mail:

abbey.rice@covenant.edu

 

Years worked at Covenant:

This is my first year!

 

 

Hometown:

Frederick, MD

 

Local church I attend:

Lookout Mountain Presbyterian Church

 

College(s) attended and degrees earned:

I graduated from Covenant in May of 2013 having studied Interdisciplinary Studies with concentrations in English, Youth Ministry, and Education (non-certification).

 

Best residence life memory from my college days:

So hard to narrow it down! The first thing that comes to mind is my senior year. I was blessed to be the RA of a hall I knew well and loved dearly, and my RA staff was a phenomenal source of encouragement, support, and friendship. Being a part of a community like that cast the vision for my desires as an ARD and a member of my community outside Covenant.

 

Favorite way to spend a Saturday: My favorite Saturdays are the spontaneous ones. I like to wake up without any plans for the day and see where it takes me. I think most of my favorite memories have come out of those days.

 

Plans for the upcoming year:

Learning, and lots of it. Learning about God, how He’s asking me to be an ARD, learning about His people, the students of Covenant, the ways He wants me to act in the day-to-day. My plans are to keep open ears, open eyes, and open hands.

 

Favorite recreational activities:

Spikeball, anytime of day I’ll stop what I’m doing to play Spikeball. I also love volleyball and played for three years at Covenant. Some other things I enjoy are soccer, art and creating, and being around kids—they remind me to stay childlike at heart and always turn my gaze towards the Father.

 

What residents can expect:

They can expect me to be eager to get to know them, seeking ways to help us create a strong community, and always open for spur of the moment adventures down or around the mountain—always.

 

Best thing about my job:

I love everything about my job. I would have to say the best part is being invited into other people’s stories. I’m captivated by the reality that every person walking around our campus brings to the table at least 18 years of life before I ever knew them, experiences that shaped who they are today, and moments that have inspired them to grow into who they aspire to be.

Favorite class taken at Covenant

Global Trends in the 21st Century with Steve Corbett. Professor Corbett loves this class and studying the world we live in, the reasons it is the way it is, and where we can go from here is fascinating.

 

What the residents on my hall can expect

The guys on fifth south are tight, they respect each other, they care about each other, they look in on each other, and they do so to grow in their faith.

Hometown

Favorite class taken at Covenant

Introduction to Engineering by Dr. Stern because it helps to show what engineering in the real world looks like and Dr. Stern is a great teacher.

 

What the residents on my hall can expect

Borderlands is a very unified hall with a chill vibe and diverse class years present on the hall—from freshmen to seniors. It’s a tight group of guys who love the Lord and each other. It is a great place to grow both as a person and spiritually. Everyone cares about each other and we do a lot of activities together. Music is an integral part of the hall (so bring your instruments). It isn’t uncommon to have a whole bunch of the guys around together having meaningful and helpful discussions on real and relevant topics and issues. We are also about working hard at being stewards of the education God has given us so there are always guys studying and working.

 

What I'm all about

Caring about the guys and being invested on and in the hall. Hanging out, working hard, talking and having friendly debates, science and technology, Iron Man, engineering, adventure, community, friendships, music, international stuff, issues, snowboarding, air soft, hiking, faith and science, and growing into a better RA, better student, better person and man after God’s own heart.

Favorite class taken at Covenant and why

Cultural Anthropology. Primarily because throughout the entire course we spend our time researching the beauty of the Lord expressed in cultures, people and creation as well as the adventure of experiencing them.

Hometown

Baltimore, MD

 

Favorite class taken at Covenant

I loved taking Theology of Missions with Dr. Herb Ward. I was often moved to tears in seeing the reality of God’s grace amongst the depravity of our current, broken world. Hope became tangible for me through this class.

 

What the residents on my hall can expect

Celebration of life in Jesus Christ through daily living, dancing, and donuts.

 

What I'm all about

I’m a strong advocate for laughter, and sometimes tears, both cultivated through community. I want to find joy in the mundane and calorie free ice cream.

Major

Hometown

Carmel, IN

 

Favorite class taken at Covenant

Travis Hutchinson’s Doctrine I. It was one of my few dreaded-early-morning-8AMs, but somehow professor Hutchinson always kept me on the edge of my seat and eager for his next class. We wrestled with tough doctrine, and a new light was brought to my understanding of our tradition and the Christian faith.

 

What the residents on my hall can expect

The craziest dress-up parties you can imagine, rollerblading races, red lipstick, late-night homework in the hallway, open doors, English accents, singing everything, dance parties, sass and class and always being heard before seen. But ultimately, third central is a place to call home where you are accepted fully and loved unconditionally.

 

What I'm all about

Hysterical laughter, good movies, soaking up the sun, anything to do with Spain, horseback riding, speaking French, Romeo and Juliet, dancing, country music, coffee, water sports, sleep, traveling, photography, and the color purple.

Resident Assistant Meg Earll ’17 Meg Earll ’17
Resident Assistant, 3rd North

 

Major

Art

 

Hometown

Orlando, FL

 

Favorite class taken at Covenant

Sculpture. It has given me a deeper understanding of who my creator is through the use of my own creativity. He was the original sculptor when he formed us from the dust of the earth. In this class, I get to tangibly participate and commune with Him by experiencing the care and detail He shaped us with. I get to give back to Him by using the creativity He has given me to create, and in sculpture in seems more similar than ever before.

 

What the residents on my hall can expect

A space to simply be. A hall of sisters who are fun-loving and laid back and who have a deep need for Jesus. I hope that we may grow in love towards one another so that as we are more known, we can know Him more.

 

What I'm all about

Seeking true joy through adventure and authentic relationships with those around me. Laughing, crying, dancing, exploring, painting, writing and soaking in the deep love of my Father.

Real talk, real fun, and returning to the gospel again and again.

 

What I'm all about

I’m all about words, friendships, listening to music, and I love the gospel.
