Meet the RA Team

Emma Johnston

Kia Ora koutou. My name is Emma and I'm heading into my second year of the Bachelor of Environmental Science with Honours, majoring in Environmental Hazards and Disasters. I was born and bred in Rotorua where I can often be found crashing my mountain bike in the Whakarewarewa forest. When I'm not injured you'll find me playing netball, tramping, hunting, skiing and doing all rad things in the outdoors that push my comfort zone. I'm always down for a good yarn and a game of pool in the common room. I can't wait to meet you all and get to know you throughout your first year of university!

 Kia Ora koutou. My name is Johannes and I am in my second year of a Bachelor of Teaching and Learning (Primary). I grew up in Queenstown and enjoy the outdoors. Outside of uni, I am a Youth Leader for St John Youth, where I was also a Cadet. I have been involved with St John for over 10 years. I enjoy good food. I look forward to meeting you all and being a part of this small chapter in your life 😀. Here's to a wonderful 2023.

Hey Everyone! I am a second year student studying towards a Bsc majoring in Geography. I grew up in the sunny Marlborough and spent lots of time camping, fishing and playing hockey. When I'm not at the turf or studying it up hard, you'll most likely find me having a game of pool or chilling watching below deck! I love any sort of sports (social or competitive). I'm looking forward to meeting you all this year and seeing you all grow within the hall and your chosen degrees!


Melissa Graham

Kia Ora koutou! My name is Mel (she/they), and I'm a second year student at UC studying English, health, philosophy, and psychology. I was born here in Otautahi, so if you have any questions about places to go, things to do, or ways of getting around, I can definitely help with that! Outside of UC, I enjoy music, board games, trumpet and going out on nice days. I'm excited to meet you all and create some awesome memories.

Kia Ora! I'm Liv and this is my second year being an RA at Arcady and my third (and final) year studying towards a Bachelor of Political Communication. I enjoy volunteering, binging series on Netflix, having a movie night (especially if it's a rom-com), reading, catching up with my friends and having cuddles with my dog. I can't wait to meet you all and get to know you throughout the year! I know you might be nervous (but hopefully mostly excited!) but I know we will have so much fun! See you soon!

Hey Everyone! I'm heading into my third and final year of Mathematics and Statistics. I took a gap year before attending UC (Shout out to the Gap year students!) and have had an absolute blast in Christchurch.  When I do get some downtime you will no doubt find me hanging out around the hall or losing a game of pool in the common room. I look forward to being a small part of this amazing journey you're all undertaking as well as having an exciting year!
