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 21 years of experience in Residence Life. I really enjoy what Residence Life is all about. On the personal side, I really dig sports and competition of all types - especially football & softball. I cheer for the Huskers on Saturday and the Steelers on Sunday. I am a huge fan of 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 – spouse Ty, our cat Sassy, and the dogs - Harrison, Larry & Jackson.
