McCreery Hall Staff


Addie Swihart--McCreery Hall Resident Director

Years worked at SC: I will be starting my fourth year this fall.

Hometown: St. Francis, KS

College attended and degree earned: Sterling College, Elementary Education

Best residence life memory from my college days: There are so many memories I cherish from my time as a student at Sterling, but some of my favorite memories revolve around a weekly tradition that happened my freshman year.  A group of about 20 students would meet up at the library around midnight on Thursdays.  We would walk to C-Mart (the gas station several blocks away), load up on snacks, laugh, hoot and holler, and then walk back to campus.  It was a rare day that we were back before 2:00 am, so it was easiest just to have a sleepover with the girls for a few hours before Friday classes!

Favorite way to spend a Saturday: I would probably take a walk in the morning, go to an SC sporting event that evening, and then hang out with a group of friends later that night.

Best thing about my job: I love getting to know the girls in my building and working alongside the Student Life staff.

What the residents in my hall can expect: In McCreery Hall, you can expect a welcoming and safe environment in which to live.  You can expect to have a staff that cares for you as an individual and wants the best for you in all areas of your life.

What is the thing you love most about living in your residence hall? I love how close everyone is here!  It's so nice to live just a few feet away from my friends.  I know that whenever I need someone there for me, or if I want to share something cool going on in my life, I can always find somebody close by.

What you're all about: Jesus!  Seriously, though.  He is the love of my life and I would be nothing without Him.

What is the thing you love most about living in your residence hall? I love living in the dorms because it is literally half of the college experience; making new friends, bonding over what TV shows you like or what shampoo you use.  Those are the things that count when it comes to building lasting relationships with your fellow students.

What you're all about: I'm all about reaching for success, though I have been learning that it is nothing if it is not through God and Him alone.  We are to serve Him in his will and not our own.
