Seth OldhamAssistant Hall Director of Breuninger & Gerig
Hi, my name is Seth Oldham and it is my privilege to be the Graduate Assistant Hall Director for Gerig Hall and Breuninger Hall. I am a 2013 graduate of Baylor University in Waco, Texas, where I graduated with a degree in American Studies with a minor in Political Science.
During my time at Baylor, I had the wonderful opportunity to live in Brooks Residential College. Brooks College provided a unique living-learning environment where I was molded and formed each and every day by interactions with my peers and professors. This amazing community challenged me to be a better person, to discover what I believe about the world around me, and to love others where they are.
Through my experience at Brooks College and at Baylor, I was able to see the impact student affairs professionals can have on the lives of students. College students are emerging adults trying to find their way through the tunnel that brings them out of adolescence and into adulthood. This can be a trying endeavor full of wrong turns, mistakes, tough questions, and hard decisions. It is so rewarding to talk through some of these questions and decisions with students. I find it invigorating to listen to students' concerns, and I greatly enjoy experiencing day-to-day life with students.
Gerig Hall is rich with tradition. Residents in Gerig experience life together through singing in the stairwell, spending time together in the lobby, eating together in the Dining Commons, and discovering God together through various small groups and worship services. Breuninger Hall is brand new. This beautiful new hall is filled with 150 new residents who are thrilled with the great opportunity to start a new community on the Taylor campus. It is my honor to work alongside these wonderful students in both halls to help build two great, authentic Christian communities.
