Residence Life and Housing

Sawyer Court

Sawyer Court is located just south of the main campus center in the Albany Park neighborhood and shares a street with our neighboring Hibbard Elementary and Albany Park Multicultural Academy Middle School. Similar to Park North, it blends apartment living with community activities, offering the best of both worlds.

What’s your favorite thing about your job? 

My favorite thing about working at North Park University is engaging with students. I love being able to be a resource for them and serve them as best I can in their journey.

What do you most look forward to within Res Life this academic year? 

I’m looking forward to meeting all the students who will be living in the residence halls. I’m excited to offer a safe space for students so they know they have someone who is always willing to listen to their concerns. I believe it’s important to always put students first and serve them, thereby displaying the love of Jesus.

What do you like to do on your days off (hobbies/interests)? 

I really enjoy going to concerts. I’m also an avid reader and love to curl up with a good book when I have the time.

Anything else your NPU residents should know about you?

I would like my residents to know that I have an open-door policy, which means I want to create an inviting atmosphere so students can feel supported and cared for. I want them to know I am invested in their success both academically and professionally.
