The Hesston College Student Life department announced 32 students as resident assistants for the 2012-13 academic year.

Resident assistants for the 2012-13 academic year include Mariah Martin of Glenwood Springs. She is the daughter of Lauren and Kim Martin.

Resident assistants are sophomore students who lead nine to 15 students in the dorms and serve as a communication link between student and the resident director. They direct dorm activities and assist the administration in the enforcement of college policies. Student Life staff choose resident assistants based on their high respect of lifestyle guidelines and exemplary academic work.

Justin Marshall, a native of Carbondale and a senior at Coe College, spent the spring semester in Nagoya, Japan, as a participant in an accredited off-campus study program. Marshall, the son of Terry and Diane Marshall, is a 2008 graduate of Roaring Fork High School.

Study abroad at Coe College allows students to take a full load of courses for semester- or year-long programs in locations around the world. Participants study local languages and immerse themselves in local cultures, often staying with host families. Upon their return to Coe, many students base advanced research or performance projects on their experiences abroad.
