Abbott

Abbott

This New Side building, housing a mix of first and upper-year students, always develops a strong sense of community. It’s a great place to meet other students, make new friends, and get some serious studying done when the occasion warrants. This year will be a great one – Abbotteers tend to be a loyal and happy bunch. What more could you want?

I will be living in Abbott with y’all this year and can’t wait to meet all y’all amazing people!!! I love playing, writing, arranging and performing music.

Shannon Hall – RA

Hello! I’m Shannon Hall and I will be an RA for Abbott this year. This is my second year at Bishop’s. I am studying Business with a concentration in Marketing and Entrepreneurship. I am from Chelsea, Quebec. I love biking, running and going on walks, especially in the fall. The campus is so beautiful! I am guilty of binging a lot on Netflix. Most of all, I love to learn about new things (especially when it comes to outer space.) If I’m not doing any of these things, I can probably be found studying in the Sportsplex or the library. This year, I look forward to also helping students in Abbott. Last year I found it very tough, as it was for most students moving away from home for the first time in the midst of a pandemic. Nevertheless, I loved living in residence. I learned so much about myself. The RAs and everyone were so welcoming. Even though I spent most of the time studying by myself, I never felt that I was alone. I hope that I can make you all feel the same! With the hopeful lifting of restrictions, we can all look forward to many more activities and make this year fun and exciting. If you have any questions or just want to talk, do not hesitate to contact me at shall20@ubishops.ca. I am very excited to get to know all of you.

Benji Morisson – RA

Hey, I’m Benji! I’m so excited to be a part of the Residence Life Team this year! My whole life I’ve lived in New Jersey and I’m beyond excited to move to Québec for my studies. I’m a double major in classical music and biology. I’m proud to be gay and non-binary, and my pronouns are he/they. I want every queer or questioning student in residence to feel comfortable coming to me with any questions or advice. This is a safer space! I’m here for you. 🙂

I spend my free time watching cooking shows and cartoons and playing games on my switch! (We should totally play Splatoon some time!!!!!!! :D) Feel free to add me on Facebook and shoot me a message sometime or send me an email at bmorisson19@ubishops.ca!

I’m so excited to meet you! Welcome to Bishop’s!

Meet your Residence Life Coordinator (RLC)

Aaricia du Bois de Nevele

Aaricia du Bois de NeveleHi everyone!

My name is Aaricia but most people on campus know me as Reese, so feel free to call me either! I am one of your Residence Life Coordinators at Bishop’s. As a member of the professional staff, my role is to help foster communities that are conducive to personal growth and academic success. I’m also here to make sure that everyone’s experience in our residences is both safe and fun!

During my undergraduate studies at Bishop’s, I explored various disciplines such as Psychology, Japanese Studies, and Religion. I also had the amazing opportunity to travel to Japan for a 10 months internship in Yamaguchi Prefecture, where I taught English to children and learned about Japanese culture. My favourite hobbies are working out and reading. I also enjoy learning new languages (I’m currently trying to learn Luxembourgish!) and spending time with Duchesse, my big fluffy cat.

Whether or not it is your first year at Bishop’s, I hope that it will be filled with new learning opportunities and memorable events, and that you will forge lifelong connections on our beautiful campus. To stay up to date on guidelines and events happening in Residence, I highly suggest you follow us on social media! Our handle for both Instagram and Facebook is @UBishopsRezLife.

For any Residence Life questions, you can also email residencelife@ubishops.ca and someone from the Residence Life Staff team will be happy to get back to you.

For any questions related to Residence fees, meal plans or room assignment, please email the Residence office at residence@ubishops.ca.

Looking forward to connecting with you!

Aaricia
