Meet MSUM’s new room assignment coordinators for student residential life, Grant Ishaug and Brandon Erickson. They help incoming and returning students find a dorm situation that fits their needs.
Q: What's your favorite part about MSUM residential life?
Grant: It feels like a home away from home.
Brandon: I like the sense of community here.
Q: What's something different that you noticed from living in the dorms to running residential life?
Grant: There is a lot of behind the scenes work that you don’t see as a student.
Brandon: I never thought about the process that went into residential life when I was a student.
Q: What is something you are learning from this job right now?
Grant: We are learning so much. Since there are so many moving pieces, every day, we are moving a different piece of the puzzle.
Brandon: I feel like we're learning something new every day.
Q: What are some of your hobbies outside of work?
Grant: When it’s nice outside I like to go camping. I also spend a lot of time at the lakes in the summer.
Brandon: I love going out with my friends and having dinner with them. I also like going to concerts.
Q: If you were an animal, what would you be and why?
Grant: I would be a bird because I would love to fly. I also love to whistle.
Brandon: I think I would be a monkey. I think they are goofy and spontaneous like me.
