Matt Kent

Resident Director for Nye Hall

Hi Folks! My name is Matt Kent and I'm really excited to be back in Nye. This will be second year as an RD ! I'm from the California Bay Area, though I haven't lived there in a while. I got my B.A. in English and Writing with a minor in Creative Writing up in Ashland, Oregon at Southern Oregon University and then I went east to get my M.S.Ed in Higher Education Administration in Norfolk, Virginia at Old Dominion University. I've been working with college students in various capacities for five years. I love travelling and trying different kinds of food with friends. I also love playing video games and board games. I'm looking forward to meeting you and I hope you're excited to be a part of the Nye community!

Graduate Resident Director for Nye Hall

Hello All! My name is Desiree Valdez Chavez, and I have been given the opportunity to serve as the Graduate Resident Director for Nye Hall throughout the year. I was born and raised in California and studied down the road at Sacramento State where I focused my studies on Social Science, minoring in History, and Economics.  I'm excited for living in Reno - though I'm a bit afraid of the weather. I like board games my favorites are Monopoly or Ticket to Ride, card game is Uno. If you want to play basketball, volleyball, or want to catch a ball I'd be glad to tag along. I like movies that aren't scary, I prefer a good laugh. I'm excited to be a part of this community! Stop by and say hello! I am here for you! Don't be afraid to ask any questions.
