Handy Hints and Tasty Tips


PASS logo

Each hall has PASS (Peer Academic Support Services) volunteers who are willing and able to help you.  PASS members offer to lend a hand in their best classes where you might need a hand.  You can visit PASS members in any building!  As soon as we have some PASS members identified for this year, you will be able to click on the link on the logo above to see a list for each hall.

Welcome to the ARM Academic Success Spot. As you know, each of your buildings has at least one ARM, or Academic Resource Mentor. But there are lots of you, and they can't be everywhere at once, so we've created this page to provide you with some resources that you can access when your ARM isn't there to help.  

button logoWho and what are the ARMs?

ARMs are Academic Resource Mentors -- peers whose goal is to help you find the information, locate the resources, and connect you to people who can help you in your academic endeavors. They provide academic and life skills programming, too. ARMs have office hours in your halls, when you can see them to get assistance. They are students, just like you! They can also help you touch base with PASS members, student volunteers who offer tutoring or assistance in subjects they do well in.

We're sure you'll see your ARM around in the building, but just in case, here are the ARMs for 2017-18 (scroll down!):

Centennial Hall

Hi! My name is Megan and I am an ARM in Cenntenial Hall. I am a Junior Social Work major. I am starting my first year as an ARM and I could not be more excited. I am really into reading, and it usually pertains to my major, but if you have any suggestions do not hesitate to tell me! I also like Netflix, and I have a (sometimes unhealthy) love for coffee. I can not wait to work alongside everyone this year. Come stop by anytime!

Shannon Lynch


Fairfield Hall

Hello! My name is Shannon and I am the ARM in Fairfield Hall. I am a Nursing major, a member of the Kathwari Honors Program and a part of the field hockey team here at WCSU. My goals for the semester include motivating and supporting the residents academically in the hall. I hope to be a good resource for the residents and I hope that I can help them transition into their first year of college smoothly.

I consider myself good at time management and organization. My strengths academically include math and science. Math and Science are not the extent of the help I can provide. As an ARM, I can (and will) seek out answers and provide a direction for residents. I am super excited to start this year!

Grasso Hall

Hi everyone! My name is Emily and I’m the ARM for Grasso this year. I’m going into my Junior year as a Creative Writing major. That means that I am more than happy to help with papers, either by bouncing ideas off of or developing a thesis.. Other than writing help, I can provide academic advice and inspiration, or just be there as a good study buddy! I am here for you in whatever way I can be to help you on your journey to reach your goals.

I love music and books, so ask me if you need a recommendation, or let me know if there’s some cool band or author I should check out! I also love art, nature, thrifting, and hanging out with my friends. I hope to utilize these passions to put on some creative programs and do some rockin’ academic counseling that everyone can come learn from!

Litchfield Hall

Hello all! My name is Keyanna Wright and I am the ARM in Litchfield Hall. I am a sophomore psychology major with the Pre-Med focus. 

Some things that I think are important to know about me on a personal level is that I love to watch Netflix, write poetry, sing (alone), and listen to music. I currently have 2 other jobs within the university. I work in the financial aid office and I am starting a new job this year in mentoring position for special needs students. I am also on the E-board of the African Caribbean Student Association (ACSA) and a frequent participant in the Black Student Union (BSU), and Minorities in Medicine clubs on campus.

I am looking forward to interacting with the first year students as well as providing an environment that is conducive to both their learning environment as well as my own. I am excited to getting to know my residents. I hope we can all grow, learn, and embrace this experience as a team.

Pinney Hall

Hello everyone! My name is Victor Namer and I am one of the two ARMs in Pinney Hall. This is my first semester as an ARM, and am incredibly excited to be working with everyone! I am a psychology and political Science major going into my fourth year, and am very passionate about activism and social change.

 Three things I earnestly love in life are bubble tea, hugs, and traveling. I have studied abroad in Thailand and Spain over the past year, and have visited 17 countries at present.

I have a very strong wanderlust, and love learning about new cultures. While abroad I discovered a love for cooking, so if you are interested in learning basic cooking skills, I would love to work with you!

Either way, I love people, so please come and stop by to say hello!
