Staff Testimonials

"Being a Residence Director at Belmont University is more than just working a job. It's about making a difference in someone's life.  Each day is full of opportunities to have a positive impact on someone around you, and in the process your own life is impacted for the better.  You won't find a more enjoyable and welcoming staff of people to work with.” - Christopher DeLisle, Residence Director, 2010-present

"In our department and division, we look to hire people who are not only highly-qualified in their field but also those who have a positive attitude and a genuine care for students.  It is such a gift to work with people who work as hard as I do, who keep complaints to a minimum, who try to uplift each other every day, and who are willing to pitch in to get a job done. 

I am especially thankful for supervisors who care about my development as a young professional and who try to challenge me in new ways while finding tasks that put my personal strengths to use.  Not only that, but they care about me personally and invest in me as a friend." Emily Einerson, Residence Director, 2006-2010

“Being a Residence Life professional at Belmont University is a truly rewarding experience.  Every day brings new experiences, new challenges, and during your time as a Residence Director, you will experience every emotion imaginable.  I have particularly enjoyed the developmental nature of my supervisors.  Each of the Assistant Directors and the Director of Residence Life take pride in developing you to be a stronger professional and experienced leader.  You will be pushed outside of your comfort zone and held to high expectations while also encouraged and developed along the way.” - Jared Black, Residence Director, 2009-2010
