BFA in Visual Arts
Henryetta, OK

Hi there! My name is Mikayla and I am currently a sophomore at RSU. This is my first semester as a Residential Assistant.

I’m getting my BFA, however, I am still exploring my options.

I enjoy antique shopping, playing tennis, and binge watching shows.

My goal as an RA is to be able to connect with everyone and maintain a friendly environment to live in. I am very approachable and easy to talk to. Stop by my room if you need someone to talk to or hangout with.

I am looking forward to building new relationships throughout this journey! I look forward to meeting everyone!

I have learned a lot about life with a ball at my feet.

Walker Farrar
BS in Business Administration-Marketing
Topeka, KS

Hey everybody! My name is Walker and I am a senior here at RSU. This is my second year here but my first as an RA.

After graduating high school, I began my academic and athletic career at Coffeyville Community College. I graduated from Coffeyville with a degree in the  Associates in Arts.

I am on the men’s soccer team here at Rogers State. Playing soccer has been one of the most rewarding things I have ever done. This will by my final season and I hope it is very successful! Come out and support me as well as the whole team at each home game.

I spend most of my time on class work, working out or just enjoying what Claremore has to offer. If I am not at the soccer field or outside I will most like be in Chapman grabbing a bite to eat or hanging out with my teammates. Some of my other interests would include fishing, Netflix, watching soccer games, and video games.

I look forward to getting to know all of you and if you have any other questions feel free to come by and ask

BA in Corporate Communications-Public Relations
Kaw City, OK

Hey there! I am Valerie. I am currently a senior here at Rogers State University. This will be my third year as a Residential Assistant.

I graduated in 2014 from Shidler High School with a big class of 16 graduates where I was involved in all sorts of clubs which influenced my involvement here on the RSU campus greatly.

Since I have been at RSU I have been involved with many things. I am a student on the Sodexo Student Board, an active member of Christians in Action (CIA), and attend the Student Government meetings to help and learn about things on campus. You can also see me involved with RSU’s Student Broadcasting Association.

My Favorite things to do are making new friends, being outside, visiting new places, and taking spontaneous trips. I hope all of you enjoy your time at RSU and I am excited to meet every single one of you so do not be afraid to say hello!
