Department Chair Residential Services;
Ralph W. Jernigan, Jr., D. Min.
My name is Colton Fox. I am a senior at Liberty University majoring in Interdisciplinary Studies with cognates in ministry, business, and media. I was born and raised in North Carolina. I love to play volleyball, spend time with friends, and cook. Currently I live on the Hill 23-2 and serve as a CGL. As a student at Liberty University, I have come to understand the importance of mentors and people around me. As a peer mentor, I look forward to helping students grow to their full potential and become a champion for Christ.
My name in Michael Williams and I am studying Sport Management here at Liberty University. I currently play ice hockey on the Division 3 team, and this is my second year on the team. I have been blessed to be a spiritual leader on my hockey team where I can pour into all my teammates. During my time at Liberty so far, I have had the opportunity to learn from some amazing mentors who have helped me learn how to go navigate through Liberty as a student, but also as an athlete. Having the right people around me has made me the person I am today. I am looking forward to mentoring students.
