Alice

Residential Assistant

Hi, I’m Alice and I am the RA for B Block. I was born and raised in Auckland, at 15 I moved to Sydney, Australia with my family. I lived and worked in Sydney until I decided at the age of 26 that when I grew up I wanted to be a clinical psychologist and I’m currently in my 2nd year of a BA majoring in Psyc. Building and fostering healthy relationships through good communication is my greatest interest in life, so naturally I talk a lot and enjoy a long conversation. In my spare time I enjoy reading, movies, walking and hiking and exploring new areas of Wellington. This year I’m excited to be part of a team that is passionate about bringing people together and making sure we all have a place to call home.

Emilie

Residential Assistant

Hi, I’m Emilie, the RA for C & D Blocks. Kia ora! Ko Emilie taku ingoa. I was born in Switzerland and moved to New Zealand when I was one years old. I grew up on a drystock farm outside Raglan in the Waikato with my father who is a farmer and my mother who is French and a science teacher. I have completed a Bachelor of Arts majoring in Theatre and English Literature, and this year I will be doing Honours in English Literature. I love reading (obviously) and watching movies, swimming, skiing, horse riding, and hiking. Theatre, both watching and being a part of, is a big passion of mine so you might see me around with crazy make up or see me shamelessly promoting shows either I or friends of mine are in! Get involved in supporting Wellington art! This year I’m trying to do more hiking and learn and use more te reo Maori so feel free to help me out if you have knowledge or experience! I am looking forward to making good use of the big TV in the hall at Everton, as well as using the board games to excess so that Everton is forced to buy new ones (hehe)! I am looking forward to getting to know you and creating a place for you guys to call home!

Sam

Residential Assistant

Hi all! I'm Sam and I’m the RA for A Block and Villas. I'm from a tiny place called Dannevirke (45 minutes out of Palmerston North, you might've driven through the place). I'm doing my Master of Landscape Architecture. I'm looking forward to doing all sorts of awesome things this year! We'll have lots of activities and events planned to help you live, learn and grow! I hope to help you have an amazing time here at Everton and have an amazing year.

staff support

At Everton Hall a Residential Assistant (RA) is always on hand to look after you, help organise social events and offer a friendly ear if you’re feeling a bit homesick. RAs are senior students selected for their personal and leadership qualities.

On call 24/7, the RAs are very approachable. They can be contacted by dialing +64 4 472 0655.

For emergencies there is a Residential Life Coordinator and Head of Hall who both live on site; the on-duty RA will contact them should they need to.

The Residential Assistant (RA) team, made up of senior members of our student community, is an essential part of the Village support network.  Led by the Residential Life Coordinator, RA’s all live at Everton Hall and are students of Victoria University of Wellington.

The RA team helps to organise a range of activities as part of our Residential Life program. They also help make sure that the Village operates smoothly and a pleasant environment is maintained for all residents.  RAs are trained in a number of areas to ensure they can provide the appropriate support and assistance in the Village, including conflict resolution and first aid.

They are also there to provide help to residents who are experiencing difficulties and are in need of assistance. You can also just have a chat with them if you need talk anything through with someone.
