Bryce WatkinsSamuel Morris Assistant Hall Director
Several fun things about me: my favorite type of music is Christian rap (Lecrae, KB, Trip Lee, Derek Minor, I could keep going…); I was blessed to play basketball and volleyball throughout high school and college; I can be sarcastic at times—83% exactly; And my heart is in the roaming hills and trees of the Northeast; I grew up in Connecticut, and I think it has the best fall colors.
I graduated from Messiah College in 2012 with a BS in Mechanical Engineering. During my undergraduate time, I had the opportunity to work at Camp Spofford in New Hampshire where I discovered a passion for working with the high school and college summer staff. This interest, confirmed by two years of working in Residence Life at Messiah College, has become my career focus. I am currently a second year graduate student studying Higher Education at Taylor University, and hope to graduate this year.
As an Assistant Hall Director, I spend most of my time interacting and building relationships with the students in Samuel Morris Hall. Specifically, I help supervise the discipleship program in the hall, as well as supporting the PA (personal assistant) staff as they live their Christian faith on their floors.
The role calls me to enter into the exciting and monotonous times students experience, all the while empowering them to invest in their relationships with other students and their faith. A huge blessing comes from the moments of growth when I see a student look at an experience from a different perspective. Another blessing comes when I see a student sets their mind toward taking an attitude of scholarship: looking to learn from all opportunities.
