Prospector Hall

Riley Chesnut - First Floor South 
Devin Lake - First Floor North

Resident Assistant Devin Lake

Hello friends! I come to you from the legendary “Funktown”, more commonly known as Frenchtown, Montana. This is my fourth year on campus as a Mechanical Engineering major. One of my biggest passions is PEOPLE! Expect to find my door open 100% of the time I am in my room, Prospector #120, this year, and don’t be afraid to come on in and talk. In fact, bring all your friends down if you’d like—it’s one of my favorite things. You can also usually find me around campus having some pretty epic fun with the Chi Alpha club of which I am president again this year. If I’m off campus, it’ll probably be somewhere outdoors chasing elk or catching trout. However, I have recently discovered that I do have a weakness for good coffee shops and pretty guitars. I’m also a rather large fan of racquetball, basketball, and football. So I hope you enjoy this year in the dorms and I eagerly anticipate getting to know you all real well!

Calvin Odom - Second Floor South

Resident Assistant Calvin Odom

My name is Calvin Odom. I am from Northeast Montana and graduated from Opheim High School in 2009. I am currently a Junior in Petroleum Engineering. I enjoy taking part in college activities such as movie nights, intramural sports, and watching the college sporting events. Outside of college, I like to spend my time outdoors. Hunting, Fishing, and being with my friends and family are some of my favorite things to do.

Wes Fraser - Second Floor North

Resident Assistant Wes Fraser

Hi, I’m Wes Fraser, and I am a sophomore in Petroleum Engineering with a Pre-Med minor. I‘m not entirely sure what I want to do for the rest of my life, but I figure I have a little more time to figure it out. I am the newbie, so I may not be a wealth of knowledge like the other RAs, but I am always willing to help out in whatever way I can. 

Fernando David - Third Floor

Resident Assistant Fernando David

Hi There! I am Fernando David, I was born in Angola (Africa) and moved to the United States about three and half years ago. I do speak a couple of other languages besides English. I lived in New York City for about seven months and moved to Butte, Montana in January of 2009. I am senior majoring in Petroleum Engineering at Montana Tech. I occasionally kick it in Seattle area and New York City, where I have some of my best friends. This 2011 summer, I was interning with Baker Hughes in Houston, TX, as an Application Engineer Intern.My favorite sports includes: skiing, swimming, soccer, basketball, football, hiking, and doing random stuff while I hang out with friends. So, go New York Jets, Yankees, Knicks and/or Miami!! I know you're going to hate on me now!

Heather Kolberg - Fourth Floor

Resident Assistant Heather Kolberg

Hi! My name is Heather Kolberg, and I am from Glendive, MT. I am a junior in Geological Engineering with the Hydrogeology option. I will be the resident assistant on the fourth floor of Prospector Hall. This will be my first year as an RA, and I can't wait to meet you all! 

Centennial Hall

Dillon Oliver - First Floor
Asel Sherimkulova - Second Floor South
Andrew Bender - Second Floor North

RA Andrew Bender

Hi, my name is Andrew Bender. I’m a fifth-year senior in Chemistry and General Engineering and really have no career plans yet. I’m from Darby, MT, right near the bottom of the beautiful Bitterroot Valley. I play on Tech’s hockey team, and we have plenty of home games, so you should come check us out down at the Butte Community Ice Center. Other than that, hit me up if you’re ever on Second North Centennial.

Casey Clark - Third Floor

Resident Assistant Casey Clark

Hello Everyone! I’ll be your fearless Resident Assistant on 3rd Floor in Centennial Hall. Welcome to Montana Tech, the greatest place on Earth! Though originally from Helena, I’ve adopted Butte as my new home after spending so many glorious years here. By the time you walk the stage at Alumni Coliseum, I can only hope you feel the same. My primary ambition at Tech is to graduate in Environmental Engineering, Mathematical Sciences, and Statistics, and I’m plunging head first into my fifth year on campus. Call it a victory lap, if you will. Classes keep me pretty busy, but that’s not to say I don’t squeeze in a little fun every now and then. You can catch me kickin’ it with EEMT, Math Club, RHA, and Running Club (don’t know what these are?...check ‘em out at Club Rush!) and I tend to compete in an intramural sport or two. I’m guilty of being addicted to great music and epic movies, and I can’t get enough of the Montana outdoors and the active lifestyle it promotes. Join me for some hiking, biking, running, fishing, and shredding on the slopes at Discovery if you’re up for an adventure. In the meantime, I am looking forward to seeing some new faces around campus and reminiscing with old friends, so if you see me around, just say “Hey!”
