Hi friend! My name is Bailey Goalstone and I am a Modern Worship Major from Las Vegas, Nevada. My favorite thing about ACU has to be the tight knit community, to have the opportunity to build real relationships and invest in a space that truly feels like home. My hope as the 1st floor RA is to serve in that same community; to help everyone feel loved and welcomed, to make people aware that they are seen and valued, and to encourage the girls I get to do life alongside. I enjoy the color yellow, mint chocolate chip ice cream, & good conversation. Stoked to meet you all, this year is going to be great!
Hi my name is Jenna Castilleja (I applaud you for trying to pronounce it, so here’s a hint: Cast-ee-ay-ha). I am from Kennewick, Washington, and am studying Elementary Education at ACU. Some of my favorite things include otters, “Friends,” laughing, the colors blue and yellow, watching baseball, cheese (best food ever), “The Office,” and going to the beach! I love ACU because it’s like a family here, you know almost everyone on a personal level and you make lifelong friends because of how small it is. I’m excited to be an RA because it will bring me closer with girls I didn’t know before this year, and because it will be a crazy new adventure for me. Looking forward to see what God has in store for me and the 2nd floor ladies this year!
Hello, my name is Tessa Williams. I am from Anthem, Arizona. I am going into my junior year at ACU, studying elementary education with an emphasis in early childhood. A fun fact about me is that I love to hike and get really excited every time I see a puppy! I look forward to the opportunity of getting to know all the ladies on the third floor. My favorite thing about our school is that there is such a strong community of people that genuinely care for each other. This is seen not just with students but also with staff as well. The staff cares about our personal and spiritual growth.
My name is Naomi Matzke. I am from Sacramento, California and I will be a junior this year. A couple fun facts about me are, I love hiking. I want to take a backpacking trip around the world but I’m very accident prone. One time when I was hiking, I cut my knee open just walking. I should have gotten stitches but I didn’t. My major is behavioral health and with this I want to help kids with special needs. I am excited to be an RA this year because I want to make new friendships and be a isotope influence in younger girls. I not only see the girls succeed in school but also grow in their relationship with God. I love the community at ACU and I also really enjoy being able to learn more about the Bible.
Hi, my name is Nick Mancuso, and I am excited to be the men’s first floor RA. I can’t wait to have a great year getting to know the guys in my hall. I am a junior majoring in Family Studies with a minor in Behavioral Health. My favorite thing about ACU is that it gives me the opportunity to pursue my faith in Jesus with my friends and classmates. Fun fact: I’ve lived on the same street in Phoenix my whole life. I love Marvel movies, exploring, playing video games, and watching sports.
My name is Trevor McGee and I’m a junior and majoring in Business Administration. I am from Brea, California, and I love to go to the beach, fish, hike, and hang out with my friends. I am excited to be an RA because I have had great RA’s the past couple years and I am striving to be as impactful as they were. I really enjoy ACU because of the meaningful and strong friendships that I have created as well as a constant good energy that can be felt throughout the entire campus.
Hey! My name is Trevor Bragg, and I am a Sophomore basketball player here at ACU. I’m a Secondary Education major with an emphasis in English. I grew up in a small city in Southern California called Victorville. I can’t wait to meet new people and build new relationships while helping them grow in their walk with God. Arizona Christian is a big family with Godly foundations, and that is why I love this University and want my floor to experience this as well. Also, If anyone would like to challenge me in 2K, The Show, or Madden, be prepared for a loss.
As an RA I get the pleasure of helping the freshman dudes adapt to college life, along with that I’m super excited to meet everyone and develop meaningful relationships along the way. I love to surf and rock climb, pretty much anything outdoors. My major is behavior health. I grew up in Vista California, it’s right next to Oceanside but a little inland. I love ACU because it has an incredible community of students who all share a similar love for each other and most importantly for Christ, it’s an amazing atmosphere to grow in.
