Mackinnon

Mackinnon is a traditional-style residence and houses approximately 115 residents. Situated at the centre of campus, Mack is a mere stone’s throw from practically everything at Bishop’s. Mackinnonites also enjoy the use of a common kitchen facility, TV lounge, and the Blue Room, an inviting lounge and study facility. You and the friends you’ll make will be glad you spent your year in Mackinnon Hall!

Meet the 2021-2022 RA team

Brenn Wickheim – SRA

Hey Gaiters! My name is Brenn. I’m one of your Senior Resident Assistants this year in Mack, and I’m really looking forward to meeting you all! A little about me: I’m a fourth-year Biology student from the west coast of Vancouver Island, British Columbia. I love reading, the outdoors and hanging out with friends – they know they can bring me anywhere if there’s bubble tea involved. I have a giant dog named Landcruiser at home in BC, so if you ask about her, there are pictures guaranteed. I lived in Mackinnon in my first year and had an amazing time – and you all will too! I know this year, like the last, will be unconventional. However, my hope is to give you the best Bishop’s Residence experience possible, so that you all love the campus as much as I do. There are tons of clubs, activities and groups that you can get involved in, and I encourage you all to explore the variety of opportunities the campus offers. I really love Mack for the social environment it brings, and I think you will as well. You can contact me at kwickheim18@ubishops.ca if you have any questions or even just want to say hi – I’d love to hear from you. You can always knock on my door in Mack, and if you see me around campus, feel free to come chat. We’re going to have an amazing year!

See you around campus!

Brendan Kelley – RA

Hey! My name is Brendan Kelley and I am a third-year student in the William School of Business here at Bishop’s. My hobbies include spending time outdoors with friends doing things like swimming and playing soccer or golf in the summers as well as skiing in the winter. I also watch a lot of movies, some of my favorites being Marvel movies and Star Wars. I also really enjoy traveling and have spent time in lots of different places like England, Ireland, Scotland and my favorite (so far) being to Italy with me and 3 friends. I have had the opportunity to learn about many different countries and cultures due to these travels and I hope to continue to do so throughout my life.

I love going to school here and I really enjoy the student life on campus which prompted me to become a RA. I am looking forward to helping students acclimate to the environment of being in Rez. Being from the United States, I understand a little more about some of the struggles that come with being a student in a different atmosphere than one might be used to, so I really hope to be able to help any student that needs it. I also really hope to make living on my floor a fun and enjoyable time for everyone where they can really get the most out of their university experience. If you have any questions or concerns you would like to share with me, you can reach me at my school email: BKELLEY19@ubishops.ca and I will do my best to help in any way possible.

Eve Rowlett – RA

Hi! My name is Eve Rowlett, and I will be one of your RA in Mackinnon this coming semester! I was born in Porters Lake, Nova Scotia, and am fluent in both English and French. In my spare time, I love rewatching the same handful of shows on Netflix and falling down rabbit holes on YouTube. I love to bake (maybe too much) and am constantly listening to music. I love learning new languages and discovering new media to watch. I highly enjoy overanalyzing books, tv, and movies; and am always down for a fun conversation about your favourites. Don’t hesitate to stop by and chat about what’s on your mind. I’m a second-year student here at Bishop’s, studying Drama and Production. This will be my first full year living on campus, as my time in Abbott last year was sadly cut short. However, I have no doubt this will be a new and interesting year, and I look forward to meeting you all! You can contact me by email at EROWLETT20@ubishops.ca, or check my location board outside my room.

Let’s have a great year 🙂

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
