Meet Brian

The best part of being a Don is the community that you become a part of as well as the community that you create with your students. I became a Don because I wanted to be a part of supporting students. I wanted to help students experience everything that Brock has to offer and help students to build connections. 

Meet Krithika

The best part about being a don is making new friends and connections, having students look up to you for guidance and help in navigating their way through university life.  

Being part of RLS has taught me what commitment is. I became a don because I wanted to mentor first-year students and help them create the best first-year experience for them and expand my leadership skills.  

You should apply to be a don because you can find your people and family here! Be part of opportunities you never thought you could make it too!!
