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 also like serving as an invaluable resource to students and connecting them with other departments on campus that can aid in their development.

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

I look most forward to helping create the residential curriculum at North Park. Incorporating self-development, community engagement, diversity, learning, and Christ in our daily interactions, policies, and program development will help build a holistic experience for both the students and staff at North Park University.

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

I like exploring the great city of Chicago. Most weekends you will find me in one of the different neighborhoods of Chicago. Hyde Park, Lincoln Park, and the Loop are so far my favorite places to visit in Chicago.

Anything else your NPU residents should know about you?

My residents should know I will strive to be a great resource, advocate, and source of motivation. I have a vested interest in their development and want to ensure they are successful academically, emotionally and are well rounded.
