Adela Solis










Adela Solis
Assistant Area Coordinator

Hometown: Pampa, Texas

Education: Bachelor of Business Administration in Marketing, in progress from West Texas A&M University (anticipated Dec. 2012)

What I Love About WT: I love that WT has such a welcoming and friendly campus. Our faculty and staff value the importance of building relationships with all students to better aid and prepare them for their future. Most importantly, I love the all-around support that WT gives students.

Why I'm Excited to be a Coordinator: There are so many reasons that I am excited to be a Coordinator, but the most important is because I get to be surrounded by some amazingly beautiful people who are on a mission to better themselves and the lives of others. Being able to build relationships amongst the people I work with and help make our residents' experience of living on campus the best it can be is the best part of it all. I want Stafford to become our residents' home away from home and feel that they can find comfort here.


Lauren Carter









Lauren Carter
Resident Assistant

Unit/Hall: Stafford Units F/G

Hometown: Elkhart, Kansas

Major: Biology (for Chiropractic or Physical Therapy)

What I Love About WT: WT is the perfect size and very friendly! This will only be my second semester, but I know the majority of students I see on campus. I have also never been around so many friendly and respectful people until I arrived at WT!

Why I Love Living On Campus: Not only is living on campus convenient but it is also a great way to be involved. Living on campus determines how quickly a student gets involved in campus organizations and meets other students. It is simply the easiest way to do both of these things!

Why I'm Excited to be an RA: Being an RA gives me the opportunity to build relationships with other students I may not have otherwise met, and I get to be a role model that my residents can turn to for assistance in their everyday lives.

Resident Assistant

Unit/Hall: Stafford Unit C

Hometown: Hereford, Texas

Major: Pre-Dentistry

What I Love About WT: It's close to home and the town is not too big and not too small.  The professors actually know you, the people are amazing, and it's not as expensive as other universities!

Why I Love Living On Campus: I get to meet new people, I don't have to waste gas, and everything is just so much more fun and less stressful when you don't have to worry about driving back home after a late night move night or study session.

Why I'm Excited to be an RA: I love helping others.  Stafford is like my home now, and I love the people I work with, as well as all the residents!  =)

Resident Assistant

Unit/Hall: Stafford Unit H

Hometown: El Paso, Texas

Major: Vocal Performance

What I Love About WT: Everyone here is extremely friendly and helpful all the time!

Why I Love Living On Campus: It makes having a social life extremely accessible because you are always presented with opportunities to meet new people.  Living on campus also makes getting to and from class very easy and as painless as possible.

Why I'm Excited to be an RA: I love to organize fun things to do and to help people feel as welcome and comfortable here at WT as I do.  =)


Marisa Taylor






Marisa Taylor
Resident Assistant

Unit/Hall: Stafford Units D/E

Hometown: Guymon, Oklahoma

Major: Nursing

What I Love About WT: Among all the things I love, what I love most is its location. Canyon has a small town or 'back home' feel that most college towns don't have. And with Amarillo being so close, you can always go if you need anything.

Why I Love Living On Campus: Because it is the best way to get involved and the easiest way to make memories that will last a lifetime! Stuff is always going on in the residence halls, so there is never a dull moment.

Why I'm Excited to be an RA: I get to continue on the legacy that my great RAs set before me! I'm excited to show the girls why college is the best time of our life and just make the best out of the moments we have.

Emily Walker








Emily Walker
Resident Assistant

Unit/Hall: Stafford Unit B

Hometown: Jacksonville, Texas

Major: Elementary Education (ESL Generalist)

What I Love About WT: I love the opportunities and amazing community that WT has to offer.

Why I Love Living On Campus: I feel as if living on campus has helped me become more involved in the WT community. I love being able to bond with the other girls in my residence hall and being able to create those tight relationships that are always much appreciated in your college years.

Why I'm Excited to be an RA: I'm excited to build relationships with the girls in my residence hall. I'm looking forward to creating a sisterhood that works together and holds everyone accountable. I know it will amaze me when I see the relationships between the girls grow stronger as they establish a community that they could feel comfortable calling their "home away form home."
