North Central University’s apartment resident director finishes strong.
By Nathan Wileman
In May of 2009, Brittany Wipf left Phillipps Hall as the assistant resident director with a dream of one day returning as its resident director (RD). This was a dream that would come to fruition little more than a year later. Aug. 2011 saw Wipf return to Phillipps Hall as the new resident director.
After six years of faithful service to the Phillipps Hall and apartment communities, Wipf has decided to move on to new heights.
“I have loved every minute of working here, but I knew it would not be a forever thing,” Wipf said.
Wipf stated that she felt it was time to move on because it was the right time for both her family and the apartment community.
Wipf will be finishing out this school year and will wrap up her current position during the summer.
“I am currently applying and interviewing and seeing what is out there,” Wipf said. “I don’t actually have anything set up yet.”
Wipf is one of the four resident directors currently employed by North Central to oversee the general well-being of the students who live within the specific living areas. North Central’s resident directors have a tendency to serve longer than many other positions held on campus. Wipf has held the position of resident director in two separate communities for a total of six years.
“I think the work environment is really great. It’s incredibly supportive and I get to work with excellent colleagues who are also friends,” Wipf said. “It keeps you coming back when you get to work with excellent people in a really supportive environment.”
Though she doesn’t have a job lined up after her current position comes to an end, Wipf has hopes for the position to come.
“I would love to continue to have influence in the lives of students at a school somewhere,” Wipf said. “Something that has kept me here was how much I get to integrate my faith into my everyday work. I don’t think that is something that I will get wherever I end up.”
