Corrie Gorton

Corrie is a Resident Adviser in McMahon Hall.  As an RA, Corrie works closely with a floor of UW students.  She serves as a resource for them, helping them through any personal or academic issue they may have.  She helps them create connections with both the campus community, and with other students on her floor and in the building.  She hosts social and educational events for her residents, working hard to make sure that each resident feels valued, included, and connected during their time at UW.  In this way, Corrie’s contributions to the University of Washington are significant.

 Many students have Corrie to thank, in part, for their ability to be successful at the UW.  Corrie’s floor is composed of entirely first-year students.  Because of this, many of Corrie’s residents look to her as a mentor and guide in navigating the often-challenging transition from high school to college.  Corrie helps her residents develop independence and create a “home away from home” in their on-campus living space.

 In addition, Corrie also coordinates the hall newsletter program, creating informative and engaging content that helps residents be more connected to their building and campus.  Corrie is a dedicated leader in her community who is always available and accessible to those who she serves.  She greatly deserves this recognition.
