Lizzie Barry

Resident Director for Argenta Hall

Hello! My name is Lizzie and I am so excited to be the Resident Director of Argenta Hall working with civic engagement this year! I was born and raised in Minnesota and graduated with my Bachelor's degree in Communication Arts and Literature Education from Minnesota State University, Mankato. I then moved across the country to study and earn my Master's degree in Educational Leadership from the University of Nevada, Reno. In my free time, I am an avid reader and I love traveling whenever I can! This is my fourth year at the University of Nevada and I can't wait to meet all the great students on campus this year!

Pamela Cortes-Ortiz

Graduate Resident Director for Argenta Hall

My name is Pamela Cortes Ortiz!
I'm from Puerto Rico, that is technically "overseas". This is my second year at UNR, And I love traveling- San Francisco is my favorite so far! Mi primer idioma es Español, And speaking to me in Spanish is a hug to my soul. I went to college at (Go oranges!) Syracuse, But it snowed SO much it gave me the blues! I love to ride my bike, and I am dancer, And if you need a new show to watch, Dr. Who is the answer! I am a natural Ravenclaw, And I spent my summer in Boston, where they "pak the cah" Going to visit Ireland is my biggest dream, and if you ever come over, I'll make you my fave- rice and beans. This next year in Argenta will be the best yet! The alpacas will make memories you won't soon forget!

Mason Sims

Graduate Resident Director for Argenta Hall

Hello! My name is Mason Sims and this will be my first year as a Graduate Resident Director for Argenta Hall at the University of Nevada, Reno! I am coming into Reno after working on my Undergraduate degrees in Psychology and Sociology at Arkansas Tech University. I will be looking forward to working on my Masters in Educational Leadership and getting to know so many new people. My hobbies include going for runs, talking and spending time with others, and watching movies. My ideas of a perfect time are to watch a good indie movie on Netflix or going to the cinema theater with friends. I look forward to start working on my career and having fun with peers and colleagues in the process!
