    KIRSTEN MATHISON
    Hi! I'm Kirsten and I'm a 4th year Anthropology and Geography student. I'm from Sylvan Lake, Alberta, but this summer I'm doing an Archaeological Field School in the Gulf Islands then backpacking Europe! I love caving and exploring the island, board games, and playing the bagpipes (I promise I won't play them in the building - don't worry!) I can't wait to meet everyone and I'm looking forward to a fun year!

    LLOYD LIN
    Hey guys! I am Lloyd and I will be the RECL for the Science Community this year. I finished my degree in Science already, and I'm currently in progress of finishing my second degree in Business. I love music, and chilling on the beach (preferably a lake). I am also a food-aholic, I literally will eat (at least attempt to) everything.

    KELLY TOOTS
    Greetings to the Grad Students, Scientists and Sustainable Sout Towians! I am really excited to be joining the South Tower Community. My name is Kelly. I was raised in a small Okanagan (interior BC) town and have travelled, worked, studied and volunteered in Europe, South America, Asia and The Middle East. In my early high school days I became more aware of the beauty of nature and our responsibility to live in harmony within its processes. This led me to pursue a degree in Biology and Environmental Studies as well as a diploma Restoration of Natural Systems at UVic. I take joy in drawing, cooking, painting, meditation, most sports (including ping-pong), camping, BICYCLES!, yoga, making and listening to music, slacklining, letting go, dancing, being in nature, discussion, community living, farming, smiling, laughing, long boarding, singing, healing, reading, writing, learning, realizing... really most 'things' that are positive, constructive and accepting. I'm grateful and look forward to living learning and sharing with everyone in South Tower and residence as a whole. See you in January. Peace and bike grease. Kelly.

    KATERINA PERLOVA
    Hey guys! My name is Kat and I'm really excited to be working as a RECL in the World Connections Community next year! I am going into my third year in Political Science & Psychology and I can't wait. I myself am from Coquitlam, BC but am originally from Russia. My favourite past times include reading, dancing, playing with my little sister or volunteering. I had an incredible year last year working in Tower and I cannot wait to do it again!
