"Hello, I'm Paula Czirr, the Residence Life Manager. I'm originally from Superior, NE, but graduated from Peru State College, in Peru, NE. I've earned 20 years of experience in Residence Life. I really enjoy what Residence Life is all about. On the personal side, I really dig sports of all types - especially football & softball. I cheer for the Huskers on Saturday, and the Steelers on Sunday. I really enjoy taking in the College World Series - both baseball & softball, and have been known to sit and watch curling. I am totally thrilled when I can spend uninterrupted time with my family - partner Ty, our cat Sassy, and the dogs - Harrison, Larry & Jackson."
Taylor Beach - Senior Resident Assistant
"Hey All! My name is Taylor Beach and I am from Bozeman Montana. I'm from Bozeman Montana and my parents are still living there along with my two older sisters, Hillary and Elaine. :) I enjoy good company and doing anything fun as in sports, hiking, laughing and hanging out with friends, working out, playing board games, and much more … Basketball is my favorite sport but I enjoy playing and watching any and all sports. This will be my third year at NIC, and I am majoring in Criminal Justice/Law Enforcement. This will be my second year as a Resident Assistant and I have enjoyed working for the residence hall. One thing that I love about NIC is that they offer many fun activities to do on campus (Rec Sports, Student Events, Outdoor Pursuits, etc.). I have had fun being involved in the activities available on campus. I can't wait to meet all of you and make many memories together this year!"
"Hi my name is Arthur Putnam. I am from Bonners Ferry, Idaho. Bonners Ferry was pretty small so I had to find ways to entertain myself and have fun. When the weather was nice I would do outdoor activities like camping, hiking and my favorite mountain biking. On days that I was resting or the weather was not the greatest I would be inside programming or gaming. I love technology and love learning about it. I will be attending my second year at NIC. I am currently going for my degree in Computer Science and plan on transferring to a university at some point. When that day comes I’m going to miss NIC, especially the dorms. It’s a great place to live while going to school and you’ll make friends and memories that will last a life time! I’m looking forward to sharing some of those experiences with you guys! See you next year!"
"Hi everybody, I’m Josy Wegner. I was born here in Coeur d’Alene, but spent the majority of my life living in Ogden, Utah. This will be my second year at North Idaho College. I am currently undecided when it comes to my major, hopefully that will change this year! In my free time I love just being with my family and friends- they mean the world to me. I love the arts, and enjoy singing and listening to music, performing or watching others perform- whether on stage or in movies, reading books and occasionally trying to write my own. I also adore fashion: clothes, shoes, purses, makeup… anything girly really! I’m looking forward to this school year and to meeting all of you- please don’t hesitate to come say hi!"

My name is Gustave Lester and I am serving my first semester as an RA for Spring 2013. This is my second and final year at NIC, and boy I’m going to miss it! I am currently studying history, with the intention of one day teaching college level courses. I also spend a lot of my time participating in the NIC music and theatre department(s), as well as by serving as a senator on your student government (ASNIC). In my spare time I love to read, write, sing, act, and hang out with good friends (and drink tea when it’s available).
I can’t wait to meet all of you; this is going to be a great semester! Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you need help, advice, or just want to chat!"
