Jennifer Kira Riley
Student Director of the Diversity Center
I have accepted the position of Student Director because someone who had seen me at my worst still had faith in my ability to be someone great. She encouraged me to look beyond myself to see that I am not alone in this world. By being a part of the Diversity Center, I have been introduced to people from all different cultures. Whether we differ because of sexuality, religion, race, social status, mental stability and much, much more; we all share one commonality: adversity. The Diversity Center has shown me how to make healthy connections with others, in a new town and a new school. When I am not working in the Diversity Center, I am studying Pre-Nursing with a minor in psychology in the hopes of one day becoming a Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner. I LOVE being a student and enjoy constantly learning new things about myself, others and the world we live in! In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my close group of friends that I have made here. We enjoy hiking, exploring the Lava Tubes, playing Phase 10 and supporting each other through whatever comes our way! :-)
My name is Kaitlyn Collier. I am the administrative assistant for the Diversity Center. I started as marketing coordinator and moved up. I'm excited to say that I will be the student director in the fall. I came from Grants Pass, Oregon class of 2011. After graduating from high school, I moved to Corvallis, Oregon where I attended Oregon State for two years. I moved to Klamath Falls to get my degree in Clinical Laboratory sciences and have enjoyed every minute of it. Oregon Tech is the best school I've ever been to, and I love how everyone knows each other. Working for the Diversity center has been such an amazing experience because I got to plan many cultural events and meet some really fun people. I have learned more about different cultures and beliefs working here, and in turn that helped me learn more about myself.
Web Content Coordinator
Hey! I'm Evan MacLeod, hailing from the small town of Kenwood, CA. At 21 years of age, I I grew up on a ranch growing grapes until I graduated high school and went to the University of Colorado out in Boulder. I currently work for your local Diversity Center as the Web Content Coordinator, and love every second of it! I work as a river guide in the summer, and during the school year, I'm always looking for trips to the mountains to snowboard. However, when I'm not outside, I enjoy doing the exact opposite, with a passion for video games. Shooter? RPG? Platformer? I love them all. Other than that, I am a pretty laid back individual, so if you see me working, feel free to interrupt! I would love to hang out (and talking with you is way better than homework!)
I'm Emri Aronggear, one of the International students from Indonesia. I'm majoring in Renewable Energy Engineering.
I want to work at DC because I came from a very cultural country and I want to learn about another cultures and how they work.
Have a good one!
